OSDB, the open source database benchmark, is intended for the use of system and database developers, providing a significant chunk of benchmark code that can be used, tailored, and tweaked according to local needs. It is derived from AS3AP (ANSI SQL Standard and Portable Benchmark); its most important change is the segmentation of the benchmark, allowing developers to concentrate on the results that are most relevant to their work.
Performance Co-Pilot (PCP) is a framework and set of services for supporting system-level performance monitoring and performance management. It provides a unifying abstraction for all of the interesting performance data in a system, and allows client applications to easily retrieve and process any subset of that data using a single API. A client-server architecture allows multiple clients to monitor the same host, and a single client to monitor multiple hosts. Archive logging and replay are integrated so that a client application can use the same API to process real-time data from a host or historical data from an archive.
PureLoad is a load testing tool that simulates thousands of users executing requests against server based applications. It can be used to verify that your application will meet the expected performance criteria. PureLoad reports quality and performance problems, as well as detailed statistics gathered during a load test. PureLoad also includes extensive support for easy recording and testing of Web-based applications. The HTTP Recorder ease the process of capturing HTTP and HTTPS requests into PureLoad scenarios. The Web Crawler is used to scan a static Web site for general errors, and it can also be used to generate PureLoad scenarios to be used in a load test.
This program was written to help test the Open Projects dancer-ircd. It simulates client activity by selecting random servers to connect to and random actions out of a list. It can handle hundreds of simultaneous connections, and can replay a log file of what it has previously done in order to help isolate the actions which cause the daemon to have problems, using methods such as binary chops. Please note that although at this point code is only written to test ircds, it is hoped that this will be extended in the future to other types of daemons.
Spumoni provides an open framework for monitoring applications using SNMP. Specifically, it enables any program that can be queried via local commands to be health-checked by OpenNMS, Tivoli, OpenView, MRTG, RRDTool, and many others. This allows admins to employ enterprise-level monitoring capabilities for even non-SNMP-enabled applications.
