West Wind WebSurge is an easy to use Web load testing tool that makes short work of capturing or entering a series of Web requests and playing them back under load. The goal is to make the process easy with minimal set up so you can quickly and frequently test a site for load characteristics.

Use our built-in Web capture tool to capture and filter Web sessions from Web Browsers or Windows applications, use Telerik's Fiddler or manually create sessions using plain text HTTP headers in a text file. All HTTP request data is stored as plain HTTP headers, so it's easy to create, edit or generate test sessions manually of via code.

Capture HTML requests, AJAX, REST and SOAP services. Capture SSL requests and provide POST data, custom headers - anything HTTP supports you can use in your session. Once captured play back the session under load by running for a specified time and number of simultaneous sessions. See summarized results, a few simple graphs and examine individual requests and failures. Finally a command line tool is available to automate load tests from the command prompt or with shell scripts.

To install West Wind WebSurge, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install westwindwebsurge --version 0.60

To upgrade West Wind WebSurge, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco upgrade westwindwebsurge --version 0.60
