Write one yourself, it's not that hard (or hire me). Local server, and off
you go.

Thanks for response.

Really? How hard is it to download Apache, write a small (CGI) script and
let it create dynamically a huge feed (or statically for that matter using
cron). I can do it in just one hour. Moreover, you can configure the
parameters for stress testing yourself.

Actually, I would've given the same answer as John. Besides, an RSS feed
is technically still a "pull" medium, since it can update potentially
thousands of times a second, but your reader only captures one instance of
it on request.

With just a little studying of the RSS XML formats, even a novice scripter
could write what you require in an hour or two. Far less time than you've
been waiting for someone to suggest an existing one to you, anyway.

It's possible he's NOT a 'scripter.'

That is a wery good answer!

* All the tools you need are free/opensource.
* It will take you a couple of hours to do it
* It will give you total control over the feed for testing.
* It will teach you something about the serverside and
inner workings of a feed.

Change your nickname first. *smile*

Anyone knows of free one ?

Build a simple XML file (or save an existing one if you feel lazy). Run a
process that extends it every 3 seconds or less, simply adding (appending
an element) to the feed. John Bokma's suggestion is one which does it "the
right way", but for simplicity, use localhost.

One that returns at least 20 new feeds every minute or so ?

I am sure that your software can handle that, but can the user handle that?
I hope it a bot, not a human. Or a bothuman...

Need to test out an app.

Thanks

Hope it helps,

It's also possible that you are a poopie-head.

He wants to test out an app. So I guess either he, or someone else has
written that one.

It just doesn't seem to make sense to me to do something like this when I
am sure there is resource someone already done and offer out there.

Yeah I can DIY but I'd like to have a bit of life from computer whenever
possible ;)

Anyway http://del.icio.us/rss/ seems to fit the bill.
