Theoretical throughput maxima for SoapUI?

Hey all,

I'm wondering... just how much of a load is a single SoapUI instance on a given machine capable of generating? And how would you measure such a thing? In, say, SOAP envelopes/sec?

This is one of those "how long is a piece of string?" sort of questions, of course. But I'm wondering, in the absence of a server capable of comfortably serving responses faster than SoapUI can dish out requests, how you'd establish it?
What were the skies like when you were young?

Re: Theoretical throughput maxima for SoapUI?

Hi Joel,

We do not have any specific numbers.
In reality, the maximum load created by soapUI can depend on a variety of factors like network speed, CPU, and memory.

If you're curious about the performance of your particular machine and soapUI running on it, you can create a Groovy script that counts the number of requests over a given period of time.
