Maximum number of virtual users / agent (machine)


Maximum number of virtual users / agent (machine)


I am planning to Load Test a web service and I am interested in knowing the maximum number of virtual users a machine can handle. I think I read somewhere that it is 300. Is this correct? 

If it is, this means that if I want to load test with approximately  2000 users I will need 6-7 agents (machines) to do the job?

Is there anyway to increase the maximum number of virtual users/agent,or make it so that I won't have to use so many machines for this task?

Thank you, 



RE: Maximum number of virtual users / agent (machine)

Hi Andrei,

You are right, the number of virtual users per workstation cannot exceed 300 - this restriction is the result of certain limitations of the operating system. So, to simulate 2000 users, you need to use 7 workstations.
