Load Impact, a cloud-based service for load testing and optimization of websites, apps, and APIs, recently introduced a free, server-oriented tool called the Server Metrics Agent. It allows developers to do preventative work on server problems, as well as analyze and optimize performance. It also monitors information - CPU, memory, disk space and network usage, for example - and can be extended by plugins.

For those interested in a free load testing service, the Load Impact Server Metrics Agent offers some engaging features. Stand-outs include the ability to correlate different measurements collected from load tests, and that time series results can be viewed in graph format, or exported to CSV to view in a spreadsheet.

Check out Load Impact for more information, and see what you think. How does this compare to similar alternatives, such as webperformance's LoadTester PRO, or the Load and Performance Testing service from Blitz?
