LoadTest memory usage
Someone commented to me that Astra LoadTest is very heavy on memory consumption (1 browser session opened for each Virtual User).
Does anyone have experience with how LoadTest behaves when the number of vu's increase? Any experience with LoadTest memory usage compared to other tools?
Does "the LoadTest approach" have any advantages compared to other tools?
Re: LoadTest memory usage
Any tool that actually opens a browser is going to take a LOT more overhead than one that doesn't. I've never used LoadTest, but anything that actually launches the program sounds to me like a glorified functional testing tool.
