Lessons Learned Using the e. Valid load engine is an excellent way to test the performance of your Web. Site and server under heavy load sessions. You can see how multiple simultaneous requests are affected by the backbone of the Web, the design of your Web. Page(s), and the limitations of the server where your Web. Site pages reside. One can also gather data on how well your site performs when many users make requests for your Web. Pages.
