Hi --

I'm just a little nervous about deploying my Xen VMs.  Will they perform
when in actual production?  How stable is Xen, really?

So, I thought I would do some stress testing before deploying it.  I'd
like to test VMs running various services, alone and all together...

Does anyone here have suggestions for load generating software?  Or, has
anyone done this already?


The system is a Dell 2950 with 2 x Xeon 2.66GHz CPU's, RAID 5, 4G RAM.
Dom0 and all DomU's are CentoOS 5  2.6.18-8.1.8.el5xen. Xen version is 3.03.
I've not tried under Xen, but I used to really like the old Cerberus testing suite, available at http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=5317.
