[LoadUIWeb] Game Over: Leaving LoadUIWeb for Another Tool

We've been trying to use LoadUIWeb for the past 3 months without success. There have been new obstacles at every turn. The product seems to have a strong following and is fairly intuitive, but my experience has been negative overall.

The straw that broke the camel's back for me was when we tried testing a very simple set of pages and couldn't ramp up to 100 users without getting 408 timeout errors. When testing with Rational Performance Test and JMeter, we don't get these timeouts. The LoadUIWeb documentation points at the server as the culprit, but I seriously doubt that when we have examples of 2 other tools running successfully above 200 users.

Too bad. The product looked promising.
