How important is Load Testing?

Load testing is often overlooked and left up to customers, or put off till after a product is released. If you are working on a project that will likely have a large number of simultaneous users or concurrent connections, load testing is probably very important. There is value to both common load testing approaches of creating an in-house tool and using pre-made tools. Unless you are running a fairly standard web application or something similar it will probably be necessary to create your own tools for at least parts of the load testing process. IT Jugle outlines some of the questions you should answer about your project and the load it will need to handle.
