Richard Jones' Log: Website Performance Testing

Thu, 14 Aug 2008

I've been tasked to do some performance analysis on our new Travel Journal product (now "officially" with Fire Eagle support). The last time I worked for ekit I did a bunch of website performance testing and improvements.

I even wrote a tool to help me at the time! Last touched 5 years ago, and still at "rc1" :)

I'm now updating it (to Python 2.3 heh) and will release that 1.0 final that should've been released back then...

How does pywebperf compare to something like Pylot or some of the other non-python classics like JMeter, httperf, Siege etc.?

I'm keeping a peeled eye on your tool and will look into it deeper when you release it.

A colleague of mine found this tool really useful for stress/load testing websites: Tsung
