WAPT is a load stress and performance testing tool for websites and web-based applications. In contrast to 800-pound gorilla load testing tools WAPT is designed to minimize the learning curve and give the user an ability to create a heavy load from a single regular workstation. You can create a basic test scenario and get meaningful information about your performance landscape in a matter of minutes. WAPT is able to generate up to 3000 simultaneously acting virtual users for an average test scenario using standard hardware configuration (Pentium 4 2GHz 1GB RAM Gigabit Ethernet). WAPT creates a test workload which is virtually the same as the load experienced by a web site in the real world. Virtual users in each profile are fully customizable. They can have individual IP address (IP spoofing) user name and password and persistent cookies to name a few. Basic and Integrated Windows (NTLM) authentication methods are supported. Graphs and reports are shown in real-time at different levels of detail thus helping to manage the testing process. You dont need to wait for the completion of the test to get results so if you have already identified a problem you can stop the test fix the problem and start the test again to check for performance changes. The command line interface allows you to integrate WAPT into the existing development environment. Standard XML files are used to store test scenarios and can be modified by third party software.
