Maximum number of virtual users / agent (machine)

Hello,


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, 


Andrei

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.


Best regards,
Alexey
