There's a comparison online: The Black Anvil: Shootout: Load Runner vs The

declares Grinder as the winner. :-)
We found it useful in practice. The tool had an update recently. It is
actively under development, and it has an active mailing list too.
Distributed load testing could be improved when I tried, but Ithere have
been recent improvements in that area that I need to try out.
