We present SyLaGen, a load generation environment that focuses on extendability to realize complex scenarios. We consider different interfaces of systems under test, representation of complex client activities, individual load generation strategies and non-linear client behaviour. The requirements resulted in the creation of a modular architecture: the technical load generation functionality is provided in the platform of the environment, upon which modules for different load generation strategies, probabilistic load scripts and adapters for invoking arbitrary technologies and protocols can be implemented.
