A big hello to the community.
I'm working on a web app that is using many timers with remote objects in order to auto update the data in many places.
I was wondering if you can suggest any way of testing the server load during the application.
I have to admit its working great but I'm afraid about traffic and potential problems if the application gets crowded.
There's various tools for that kind of stuff like JMeter for Java and more found at this link http://blog.taragana.com/index.php/archive/best-5-java-load-testing-software-review/. However , it kind of isn't too relevant to Flex because it is a front-end technology. Of course you can make optimizations to business logic , and how request are made. But all-in-all the load isn't going to appear in your frontend Flex app , but instead in the backend/middle-tier type environment.
If this post was helpful please mark it as such.
Jmeter was one of the first I found too. I didnt have the time to test it yet though.
So, if I get it right by what you've said, I need another approach to this. any ideas?
