Ginpex is an open-source tool for automated load generation and infrastructure performance experiments.

With Ginpex, you can

  • Run experiments that induce certain load patterns on machines: More
    • Use Ginpex as load generator
    • Distribute load to multiple machines
    • Convenient experiment specification with the experiment model editor
    • Add machines dynamically to running experiments
    • Automate experiments
    • Integrate your own experiment logic into Ginpex experiment models
  • Automatically derive performance-relevant infrastructure parameters: More
    • Ginpex ships with predefined experiments
    • Use detected parameters for performance prediction, for example as input for the PCM

See the Ginpex wiki for more details.
