Slamd - Distributed Load Generation Engine
By fintanr on Aug 09, 2004
Slamd is a distributed load generation engine which has been developed internally in Sun, and is now available externally at slamd.com. To put it simply this is the dogs danglies of generic load generation engines. Primarily designed for use on LDAP products such as the Sun Java System Directory Server (available as part of the Java Enterprise System), it can also be used against a multitude of other applications, and includes its own scripting engine etc. I have been using Slamd internally for a while now, working on some stuff with Directory Server on amd64 hardware (screams along, and with stuff like fire engine in S10 its just getting faster). Over the next few weeks I'll post (as I get time) a few entries around using slamd.
