I would also have to recommend both ab and JMeter. With JMeter you can

Once you get the results, a good way to find out how to optimize your
code is also to use xdebug (http://pear.php.net/xdebug). By enabling
this extension, you'll be able to generate cachegrind outputs which
basically means that you can load the output file in kcachegrind or on
windows on wincachegrind and find out all the bottlenecks in your
code. Most of the times it's going to be sending you to the methods
doing the database queries or socket connections but that happens.
Hmm, good luck :)
