Truclient native mobile - How can we do load testing

Hi,

I need to do load testing of a mobile app (hybrid). I have generated script using 'Truclient native mobile' protocol.

Suppose I want to load test with thousands of users, How can I do this?. Do I need to have that many mobile devices/emulators Or How this type of load testing scenario is usually approached in the Industry?

    Depends on what you want to achieve e.g. whether performance test the backend systems or performance of the user device or both?

    If both, the standard process I know is to apply backend load using the loadrunner scripts (concurrent users) and simultaneously use mobile automation/real device to simulate critical transactions and know how the real device performs when load exists on the backend system.
