pgbench ? It's built-in, and you can add custom scripts to it.

For monitoring, since you haven't defined "good" it's rather hard to say. Monitoring's a bit limited in terms of Pg specific tools. Most people use Icinga or Nagios with the check_postgres tool, and use Cacti or Munin for trending. Zabbix is another moderately popular alternative.
