Red Hat does not provide tools for load testing, although there are many tools in the market for load testing an application server such as JBoss EAP, some are commercial and some are free for example Apache JMeter, Faban, Gatling and SmartFRog.

Since these are third-party applications, Red Hat does not provide official documentation on their usage, but there are numerous online resources which could be used.

With that said, JMeter is a popular choice for load testing Java applications out in the Java community, so it would be a place to start.
