    SilkPerformer agents: MAX VUSERS

    I have several agents setup and I have noticed that one can override the MAX VUSERS field that SilkPerformer pre-populates. I have enough agents that I will not likely need to increase the recommended value of VUSERS. I am wondering if anybody has ever increased the number of VUSERS over what is recommended by SilkPerformer and what are the pros and cons of this?

    Re: SilkPerformer agents: MAX VUSERS

    It is usually a good idea to not exceed the MAX USERS number specified for each agent. That value is calculated based on the number of bytes of memeory used by SilkPerformer for each virtual user of a certain communication type (Web, ODBC, COM, JAVA, etc).

    Since this memory usage number is a best case scenario, I recommend that you not only refrain from going over the MAX USER number, but to stay within 75% of it. Otherwise, you run the risk of going overloading the memory on your agent, thus rendering your results meaningless.

    My 2 cents.

    My two cents,

    U can increase the VUs and try but the only important issue is u will be straining yr agent. Agent health is pretty much important in Performance testing. If your agent is stressed more than 90% then the results are not dependable.
