Jmeter alternative

I'm looking for a freeware / simpler alternative to JMeter. It is a very complete yet complex tool and all I need is to simulate a number of simultaneous calls to a site, grab stats about performance (time to the response) and see how many concurrent calls it can endure without breaking. Some chart thrown in would be useful.
