  There are several free and very not so free applications that you can use to load test your application. Here is an article on it from adobe:

Also you may want to try a search on goggle using the following phrase:

"testing load on flex application"

There are a couple of things that can make or break an application when giving it a heavy load.
First and foremost is the actual code and secondly is the server equipment. You may want to test loads in a development environment then on the production.

Hope that helps.
