Borland SilkPerformer
Commercial Windows
SilkPerformer offers a cost-effective, enterprise-class tool for automated software stress, performance and load testing in an open and sharable model. With SilkPerformer, you can create powerful, realistic load tests for thousands of users running business scenarios across a broad range of enterprise application environments to identify bottlenecks, and then apply powerful diagnostics to resolve performance issues.

IBM Rational Performance Tester
Commercial Windows
Rational Performance Tester is a performance testing tool used to identify the presence and cause of system performance bottlenecks. Provides testers with automated performance testing capabilities to validate the scalability of web and server based applications

Open Source All platforms
Apache JMeter is open source software, a 100% pure Java desktop application designed to load test functional behavior and measure performance. It was originally designed for testing Web Applications but has since expanded to other test functions. Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources (files, Servlets, Perl scripts, Java Objects, Data Bases and Queries, FTP Servers and more). It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types. You can use it to make a graphical analysis of performance or to test your server/script/object behavior under heavy concurrent load.

HP LoadRunner
Commercial Windows
HP LoadRunner can help you prevent costly application performance problems in production by detecting bottlenecks before a new system or upgrade is deployed. This software enables you to measure end-to-end performance, diagnose application and system bottlenecks and tune for better performance—all from a single point of control. The integrated load test, performance test and application stress test features help you reduce the costs and time required to test and deploy new applications and systems into your production environment.
