Load Generator is a simulation tool to measure the impact of MAPI, OWA,
ActiveSync, IMAP, POP and SMTP clients on Exchange servers.
Use Microsoft Exchange Load Generator 2010 (LoadGen) as a simulation
tool to measure the impact of MAPI, OWA, ActiveSync, IMAP, POP and SMTP
clients on Exchange 2010 and 2007 servers. LoadGen allows you to test
how a server running Exchange 2010/2007 responds to e-mail loads. To
simulate the delivery of these messaging requests, you run LoadGen tests
on client computers. These tests send multiple messaging requests to
the Exchange server, thereby causing a mail load. LoadGen is a useful
tool for administrators who are sizing servers and validating a
deployment plan. Specifically, LoadGen helps you determine if each of
your servers can handle the load to which they are intended to carry.
Another use for LoadGen is to help validate the overall solution.
