Load-Testing Forward Proxy - 20.Sep.2009 8:26:42 PM

Hey guys,

We have been experiencing some delay issues on our internal forward proxy ISA array. The array is made up of three decent servers.

The wierd thing is that only forward proxy requests are delayed with destination to the Internet. The reverse proxy and server load balancing requests are all fine.

When we use our test proxy array the Internet browsing is fine during the same period when we are experiencing delay, meaning that we rule out our Internet connection and forward internet proxy we use.

We do use a plugin to add username onto the HTTP headers destined for the upstream internet proxy. I have a gut feeling this may be the problem but we need it for our security reports.

Does any one have any idea howto load test a forward proxy with the destination being the Intenet? We need to simulate around 400 concurrent users per server.

You could maybe use WCAT and define an external web server:
