I am looking for a performance testing tool to help with development regarding performance enhancing changes. What I need is to be able to make a series of changes and be able to see if the response time is heading down or not.
I have heard of, and experimented with JMeter, Gatling, Siege etc.
I am not interested in load testing the application at this point, more just a small average to see if the code is more efficient or not. When I talk about changes I am only referring to code relating changes, not hardware / enviroment
Also what I am interested in with this is the reporting that comes with it, I ideally want some simple graphs, tables etc to represent the data.
Any recommendations would be most appreciated.
