Webserver Stress Tool simulates large numbers of users accessing a website via HTTP/HTTPS. The software can simulate up to 10,000 users that independently click their way through a set of URLs. Simple URL patterns are supported, as well as complex URL patterns, via a Script file. Based on the parameters you specify, the application not only requests the HTML of a URL, but also frames, images, flash files etc., emulating the same behaviour a web browser would show when accessing the website. Each user is simulated by a separate thread with his own session information (i.e. cookies for each simulated user are stored separately) and "surfs" the URLs independently from the other users - just like in real-world usage. URLs can be parameterized for each user and the sequence of URLs can be varied. POST and GET requests are supported as well as BASIC HTTP Authentication and several other settings. New scripting functionality allows you to create highly complex URL patterns for large scale web applications. Webserver Stress Tool ensures that critical issues in your website are resolved before they bring down your web resources. It ensures that your websites and applications are given the server resources they need to guarantee a high quality user experience, and that you are getting everything out of the investment in your webserver technology through consistent and in-depth testing and analysis.
PRTG Traffic Grapher is a Windows application for monitoring and classifying bandwidth usage. It provides system administrators with live readings and long-term usage trends for their network devices. PRTG is mainly used for bandwidth usage monitoring, but may also be used to monitor many other aspects of a network such as memory and CPU utilization. With PRTG Traffic Grapher the user receives bandwidth and network usage data that helps to optimize the efficiency of the network.
Understanding bandwidth and resource consumption is the key to better network management: Avoid bandwidth and server performance bottlenecks; Find out what applications or what servers use up your bandwidth; Deliver better quality of service to your users by being proactive; Reduce costs by buying bandwidth and hardware according to actual load. The Freeware Edition of PRTG Traffic Grapher is completely free for personal and commercial use and may be downloaded for free. PRTG Traffic Grapher is designed to run on a Windows machine in your network for 24 hours every day, and constantly records the network usage parameters. The recorded data is stored in an internal database for later reference. Using a Windows interface you can configure the monitored sensors as well as create usage reports. For remote access PRTG Traffic Grapher comes with a built-in web server to provide access to graphs and tables. All common methods for network usage data acquisition are supported: SNMP: Simple Network Management Protocol is the basic method of gathering bandwidth and network usage data. It can be used to monitor bandwidth usage of routers and switches port-by-port as well as device readings like memory, CPU load etc.
