    Brent,

    Why I’m just now finding this, a year late, I don’t know, but thanks for the link. The whole tool selection topic is one that I mostly keep hoping will go away someday, but it never seems too. Folks (and by that, I probably mean managers and executives with budgets) just don’t seem to get the part where to have success they need to find a good performance tester first, and let *that* person figure out the best tool for the job.

    It makes sense, really. I mean, who would go out and buy a bunch of tools at the hardware store, put them on the driveway, then go hire a contractor to build an addition to their house using exactly the tools they just bought and laid in the driveway?

    <sigh> I guess it could be worse, those same folks could still be saying "What do we need performance testing for? Just add another Web server!" 😉
