I mean that this is very hard to simulate real traffic on my sites (
loadbalanced cluster with static/dynamic content division).
Any help appreciated .
Try siege or hammerhead, its not 100% realistic but you've some better
options like in ab.
If you have access to a Windows machine, Microsoft provides some very
nice tools as well:
and WAST (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=e2c0585a-062a-439e-a67d-75a89aa36495&DisplayLang=en
Both feature a nice graphical frontend and can simulate multiple
distinct browsers, each with its own traffic pattern, and support
sites using cookies.
