How do you do Load Testing and Capacity Planning for Web Sites
There has been a lot of talk about SSL creating excess CPU/memory load on websites. What I want to do is test this on my VPS/my brothers dedicated server. Will I be missing something important if I use apache JMeter and skipfish to create http/https server loads while monitoring/logging with htop? I plan on launching the load from an amazon ec2 interface so there will be as much bandwith as possible.
