I am looking for good load testing tools to test my web GIS which runs on Apache/ESRI AU's Dekho application (Flash based, so would require AMF support within the load testing tool).

I am currently working SoapUI/LoadUI, but I am having a tough time creating steps for it, as there are numerous AMF calls from the client to the server. Some calls even have multiple calls embedded into it.

Has anyone used any load testing tool with GIS?

I've had good results with the Neoload product made by Neotys.

I used it along with the Fiddler autorespond feature to isolate performance issues - the autorespond can respond instantly, which can help determine if it's your code running slowly or if you are just waiting for a third party server to respond.
