A couple of years ago i saw a software set, whose purpose was emulating user/client activity and stress testing remote servers (mail, web, etc.). It can be installed under linux, requires a separate server to run, has a web interface and is free/open-source. I've forgotten its name and googling hasn't helped to remember it. Maybe you could advice something instead or definitely tell the name of this software.

    no problem. Find a freelancer, pay him for his time and advice. Google. Superuser.com possibly - not sur what the rules are there. Just NOT HERE. Seriously, and non-totally-junior web software developer should know those tools - there are tons around, I do MS only development and heck, Visual Studio has that built in. There is tons of open source.
