  • Advanced test runner with many command-line options:
  • Turn a functional test into a load test: just by invoking the bench runner you can identify scalability and performance problems.
  • Detailed bench reports in ReST or HTML (and PDF via ps2pdf) containing:
  • Easy test customization using a configuration file or command line options.
  • Easy test creation using TCPWatch as proxy recorder, so you can use your web browser and produce a FunkLoad test automatically.
  • Provides web assertion helpers.
