Stress testing Joomla Sites

Web platforms such as Joomla are database driven. That means that they are sensitive to the number of connections open at any one time. Many business owners will start a site on inexpensive shared hosting for perhaps ten dollars a month.

As the site becomes more popular, they will start to experience issues with wait times and even page not found errors.

There are online sites such as http://loadimpact.com/ that will perform a load test on your site. Loadimpact offers a free service although the results are public. You simply run the test and then you will have an idea as to how much traffic your site can sustain.
