Thousands of users, Jmeter on 64 bit OS stability?
i have request from business at big Loadtest, with Thousands(now i have huge numbers as 30 000 VU, it maybe will change).
I now must specify machines for generating load. I suppose so i will need more than 2 GB memory for java process => I will need 64 bit OS machines with 8GB memory or more.
Have someone experience with Jmeter on 64 bit OS(Windows server 2003) and with such huge numbers of VU for Web application?
Every advice is good in this situation.
I would like to use Jmeter for load testing of my application(developed in java/j2ee with rich java script controls) but don't know much about it.
My queries are:
1. In JMeter how could I know that my load test scenario has been executed successfully or not.
2. Dose JMeter supports AJAX,rich controls of java script(Dojo)?
3. What badboy is used for?? is it mandatory to use with JMeter??
It will be great if you could help me to finalize JMeter as a load testing tool for my app.
