[TIP] Performance Tests

Hi All,

I am writing a web service server with SOAP/WSDL in python using the  
Zolera Soap Infrastructure module (ZSI - http:// 
pywebsvcs.sourceforge.net/).  I have a stub implementation of my  
service up and running with unittests covering the functionality of  
the service.  Now I want to create some performance tests/benchmarks  
so that I can get an idea of the resources the service is requiring,  
and compare it to future versions.

What is the best way to do these performance tests?  Time my  
unittests? Profile a set of calls on the service, and record the  
timings? Should I seperately do tests on the backend, and backend 
+SOAP messaging?  Are there any tools for this?

I appreciate any tips.
