    "Monitis is a website tester. It will test your site's ability to handle loads and speed tests too. It is free to use and it can really help you figure out where you are slowing down. I think it is a tool that everyone who has a website should be aware of. I find the layout much easier to read and deal with than a dos traceroute readout. This fits the topic nicely."
