Zed and Geoffrey, laying it down, httperf style

I’ve been waiting for this screencast for awhile. Our team at SeekingAlpha has been doing a ton of work with load testing, performance, and optimization, in both Rails and PHP (ugh). I’ve used httperf a bit but still don’t feel like I really “get it”. Its great to see Zed and Geoffrey have combined forces to lay out how to do load testing right. Or as Zed says:

…it is probably the first description of performance measurement and analysis I’ve seen that actually gets it right.

For nine crummy dollars, how can you go wrong? Thats like 1.5 triple venti skim no-whip mochas. Score.
