    # of licenses vs user question

    We currently have 3450 licenses. Is there a way to run a load test that simulates more than that #? We are looking to max out at 5000 concurrent users. is there a way to configure loops or iterations that will accomplish this?

    You'll never be able to test concurrency past the number of users in your license.

    You might be able to generate throughput of 5000 users with 3450 licenses by reducing think times, delays, etc.

    Re: # of licenses vs user question

    you should change your test to be more Throughput driven vs Concurrent user. This will allow you to adjust the think times.

    So lets say that 1 users does 4 transactions per min for the 5000 user test.

    That is a total of (5000 X 4(for the min) )X 60(Length of the test) assuming it is a 1 hour test. 1200000 this means that 1 user has to do 240 in an hour.

    So using the 3450 users each users has to do 348 an hour.
    Each user has to do 5.7 per min

    from this you can work the timing to meet the rate desired. and simulate 5000 users.

    take a baseline of the transaction and get the time for 1 transaction.
    hope this helps.
