Simulating a production load is not the same as generating load. A load generator generates a constant load of the same data set which introduces lot of caching related optimizations that shows the system to be handling load correctly.

The current project is a very simple set of classes with no UI. It is a command line utility that can generate load and does not require complex setup to do so. It allows you to load your server with a given pattern over a period of time

TODO: Generate HTTP load with randomly variable values for posting for each user to prevent caching scenario.
