I have to load test only survey software for a client. Ran into some bugs w/ Jmeter Proxy feature, but once I got it going…well, I love this tool! It’s been around long enough that most features and statistics I need have already been implemented.

One note of caution, It fails playback w/ SocketConnection exceptions when run under jre 1.6_10. I downgraded to 1.5.0_16 and it played fine. Running it on an ec2 instance so that bandwidth can match the T1. EC2 only give 1.5Mbps upstream from the instance, but that’s fine in my¬† case. If I needed more there are Jmeter EC2 slaves already setup in the EC2 repository. And at 2-3$ a day for running a small instance, this is a great solution.

    Have your ever tried JMeter Cloud? AFAIK, it is based on amazon instances, but it is a SaaS-platform, which is preconfigured for Jmeter tests.
