Re: [Fedora-directory-users] Stress tool to FDS

You can use JMETER for load testing as well. I have never tried slam D but I will tell you what i think its biggest benefit is
Another is the LDAPDecoder, which can operate as either a simple LDAP proxy or analyze tcpdump and snoop capture files to decode LDAP communication in human-readable form or even automatically generate SLAMD scripts based on the captured data so that the same communication can be automatically replayed or customized to simulate real-world directory-enabled applications
Let me tell you if you have every tried to go through ldap logs and pick out queries and try to design a stress test of your application you quickly determine you need an intern. Its a slow process.
I like the idea of recording real ldap traffic and then just playing it  back.

If you're comfortable with the complexity of JMeter, you might also have
a look at slamd (http://slamd.com), which already includes unit tests
for LDAP.  In fact, it was originally designed for LDAP stress-testing,
so it might do a more thorough job than JMeter.

The big advantage slamd has over ldclt/rsearch (which are quite handy,
and shouldn't be overlooked), is that it can be used for distributed
load testing.
