XML & Web services: loadtest tools for testing webservices
I have tried Apache JMeter. This seems to be working fine, but a colleague said that there is a problem in the clientmachine running JMeter. The JMeter process got exponential more overhead for each user added.

Any expiriences with JMeter or other loadtesting tools for webservices? (open source)
a work around we did, was have Jmetter run on differnt machines hitting the test Server..
you are going to get over head no matter what tool u use.
Please have a look at soapui 1.5 (http://www.soapui.org) which now has extensive loadtesting features, including support for functional/behavioural/performance and "requirements-driven" load testing.
The soapui site contains a JMeter comparison that shows some of the differences in features and performance.
regards and Good Luck!
