I saw that the load tests, https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CONF52/Performance+Testing+Scripts, are not supported for Confluence 5.2.
How is Confluence load tested now?
Is it possible to get these test?
As of today, current version of Confluence does not have any load-tests available. Same was 6 months ago, but it seems the the product is so stable (sic) that it doesn't need them. It seems that we were the only client that failed an upgrade from 3.x to 5.x due to system instability.
The test data cannot be imported back in Confluence because was made long time ago and it's not compatible with Confluence 5.1+.
I guess that's the reason why Atlassian dropped jmetter. More and an year ago Atlassian declared that they are working on re-implementing the stress tests differently..., and surprise they decided to implement their own test framework... which was never released.
Another "success" of the not-invented-here syndrome...
Regarding your question: because writing a proper stress-test for confluence is not something easy and especially because Confluence is commercial product (some would argue quite expensive) that was supposed to have this as part of the QA process, this being the only way that would allow a company to release new versions without creating outages for the customers.

PS. Yes, if Atlassian would pay me to write the stress-test, I would probably like to do it. But as a customer, no way, I am already spending too much time trying to workaround product bugs.
