Do you know the best load testing tools for web applications?

The testing tool used will depend on the number of users you want to target. 

For a small number of users (up to 100) you can use the built in Visual Studio Web Tests to record steps that a user would do on your site.

Alternatively for more users 200+ you should use cloud based offerings like:

  • Azure Web Tests (you can use your existing web tests) 
  • Loader.io 
  • LoadStorm.net
