Hammerhead is a stress testing tool for Web sites. It initiates connections from multiple IP aliases and simulates a user from each alias. It is fully configurable, and there are numerous other options for creating problems with a site. Extensive data collection is also available.
The Open Hardware Certification Program (OHCP) Test Suite is a collection of tests to verify the compatibility of your hardware with Open Source operating systems. Tests have been contributed by multiple authors and organizations, and are bundled with documentation, test procedures, and some automation scripts to help run the tests.
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.
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.
Java Memory Profiler (JMP) uses the JVMPI interface to track objects and method times in the JVM (Java Virtual Machine). It uses a GTK+ interface to display statistics. The current instance count and the total amount of memory for each class is shown as is the total time spent in each method.
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.
