Could anyone provide me with some insight on the following.
I have to simulate 500 users on my application.
Do I need to have 500 virtual users or 50 with 10 sessions would be enough?
Would these two scenarios give me same kind of performance statistics for the application?
to simulate 500 users, you need to simulate 500 users [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
the 2 scenarios you mentioned may or may not give you similar results.
What you are comparing is a deep well versus a shallow lake. Bth may hold the same amount of water (total transactions) but the load and impact upon the earth (systems) is undeniably different for each.
