Currently we are working on jira 4.4.5 performance tuning and for that we want our dev instance to be simulated with same load as that of our production servers for doing some testing. Is there a way for doing that?
To do that, you need to do two things
I'd start with some generalised testing first, unless I had something I really knew I wanted to test (my main client at the moment has a distinct pattern - on the plain internet, Jira works fine for the users, but inside the corporate network, Jira runs like a three legged dog after it's had a few beers). Start with https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Performance+Testing+Scripts
The load testing we have migrated prod data into test and created a REST web services interface to simulate production load to simulate key use cases.
This stated, in practice the best thing I have done to speed up JIRA was to put CloudFlare in front of it.
We have been using behind a firewall also - but the CDN still delivers JIRA content faster!
If you don't use a CDN the next step is to make sure you have Apache correctly configured for content distribution and do things such as ensuring page compression is turned on.
In terms of profiling we used HTTP access logging to identify traffic patterns and volumes. We then simply replicated request patterns using a REST client into our model site to ensure we had the thing tuned.
