SLAMD is a Java application designed for stress testing and performance analysis of network-based applications. Although it was originally designed for benchmarking directory servers, it is actually very flexible and can be used to test applications using a wide range of protocols like LDAP, HTTP, POP, IMAP, and SMTP, and can also interact with relational databases using JDBC. In addition, it provides a Java-based API for developing custom workloads, and a scripting engine and record and playback tools that may also be used in the load generation process.

Release Notes: This release includes a number of bugfixes, but also provides a couple of new features. The most notable additions are the ability to vary the amount of load over time within the same job, and the ability to persist statistical data on the client systems so that it can be at least partially recovered in the event of a problem on either the client or the server system.
