Test Load Vantage

Brian,
As a Software Quality Engineer in a former life I can tell you that there
are plenty of load test software packages out there, but they are anything
but freeware. Most often these run $1 - 2K per node.

Your best bet for testing on the cheap would be to find one of the scripting
freeware/shareware packages and run them on different machines. This will
still take quite a bit of time to setup and run.

Good luck.

Subject: [Vantage] Test Load Vantage


I'm trying to "stress test" our Vantage test server to make sure it will
hold up under heavy use. Can anyone recommend any way to do this?
Preferably, I'm looking for software, hopefully freeware, that can be used
to automate a series of Vantage commands. That way I can run the server
"under load" for at least 24 hours. However, I'll take any ideas that
anyone
cares to offer.

Thanks
