virtual user limited

Jul 19, 2013 at 5:21 PM

i would like to test a scenario with 700 virtual users.
i think it's limited to 100 virtual users.

is it possible to change virtual users maximum value ?

thanks a lot !

The virtual user count is restricted to prevent too much load on the processor while running the test.
But the restriction only applies to each Scenario so if you add multiple scenarios (even if its the same one multiple times) it should let you get around the issue.
Just note that the result will be aggregated per scenario and not across all scenarios (when viewing results there's a drop down above the chart to select the scenario).

If you go over 100 users, and its likely to affect the processor, you should also set the "SaveResponse" flag for any Web Requests that are not used by any Script actions to false. This way it won't save the response content to memory while running the test, and could help with performance.
