We have performer lite for 100 vuser. Now if we want to increase the user we found out that we can't. We'll have to spend 40+ grand to get just 100 user in full performer version than extra to add users to it. Is there anyone ran into this situation? Any cheaper alternative.
Unfortunately there is no other way around this... that's just how Segue work i'm afraid. There are are cheaper alternatives out there but depends on how much time you have available to do another evaluation, costings excercise etc.
take the results for 100 users and extrapolate them out to determine your application needs.
<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica">and if you would have hit a bottleneck somewhere in your system when you hit 101 users, aren't your extrapolated capacity results for 200, 500, 1000 users going to look silly?
