which graph will show \"no of requests per second\"
which graph will show "no of requests per second"
Re: which graph will show \"no of requests per second\"
There isn't a graph that directly shows the number of requests per second.
That's something that can be calculated in general if you have a determinate load.
If each session contains 3 requests and the session lasts 1 minute then you will get 3 req/60 seconds = 1/20 req second.
If you have 20 users simultaneously active your requests will average out to 1 request per second.
If you have 2000 users simultaneously active, then you'll be getting 100 requests per second.
You can also monitor the logs on your servers to see how many requests are hitting the access logs; but then you'll have to filter out the request types if you're generating secondary hits from your major requests (unless you have more comprehensive analytics tools...then just look at your reporting tools).
I'm not always so trusting of the metrics that are used to show anything but the response times in OpenSTA. I trust the response times a bit more, because they are samples being taken during a period of time.
Even with a tool that gives explicit request rate metrics, you'll still want to do some load modeling and have some idea as to what load to expect. Then, tune the load from there to get the desired results.
