Testing Recommendations - Agent Controller, Agents, Virtual Users
We want to simulate 3000 Virtual users in a test and we are wondering what the general recommendations are for doing this.
Recommended System Configuration for up to 5000 Virtual Users We do not recommend simulating over 1000 virtual users from one computer. Instead, use one of the following options:
• Distribute your test to at least 5 computers in your network, so that each computer executes no more than 1000 virtual users.
• Run your test in the cloud on a single r3.2xlarge Amazon EC2 instance. This instance can handle simulating up to 5000 virtual users for most tests.
We are using a cloud agent controller - So, from a performance perspective does this mean:
1 cloud agent controller, 1 agent, 3000 virtual users on the one agent spread across 3 scenarios.
1 cloud agent controller, 120 agents, 25 virtual users on each agent, spread across 3 scenarios.
