How can I increase the amount of concurrent VUSers a Web App Handles?
I'm currently testing an application which listens to web traffic. The numbers I'm trying to reach are 150 downloaded pages per second, 10,000 concurrent open sessions, each taking roughly 20 minutes to finish.
Since I don't care much about the Web application I'm loading (remember, I'm only listening to the traffic), and I have little experience in this field, I have chosen Java Pet Store and .Net Pet Store and my loaded Web Apps. The problem is, I can't load any of them with more than 1300-1500 users. Is there anything I can do in order to increase the amount of traffic they can handle? Is there any (free) Web Application which would be able to handle more load per server?
