What other advice do I have?

It's easy to use and free, a huge community, and it offers a risk free to start, so use it for application performance testing. It supports connectivies with databases, FTP, and other system protocols.

What do you think of Apache JMeter?

The Apache Foundation states the following about JMeter: The Apache JMeter™ desktop application is open source software, a 100% pure Java 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. So in other words, it’s a tool you can use to generate functional load on an application or a platform. This also immediately describes what it is good at: generating load. Yes if implemented well you not only generate dumb-load but also hit the functional application layers with the tool. But the basic function of JMeter is aimed at generating load and measuring the (server) response times during this load. What does JMeter NOT do? Despite being capable of…

What is Apache JMeter?

Apache JMeter may be used to test performance both on static and dynamic resources, Web dynamic applications. It can be used to simulate a heavy load on a server, group of servers, network or object to test its strength or to analyze overall performance under different load types.
