Stress Testing Load on a Server

Presented at STARWest 2000
The subtitle of the paper, “Stuff I Wish Someone Had Told Me about Load Testing 4 Years Ago,” sets the tone for this presentation and associated paper.  Here you’ll find a selection of lessons learned the hard way.  (The subtitle would have been a better title than the incredibly bland one I ended up with.  Oh well.  Fortunately I think the contents are better than the title.)   See presentation (pdf).
