As a part of our project requirement: We need to do performance testing of cloud based citrix application. We need to do a Load Test with 50 concurrent users.
The problem here is that client is not providing those many virtual users for Load Test. We have only one user with us to execute the load test. But we have 50 actual users with us. So we are using below approach for Load Test. Please suggest if this make any sense.
Approach: 50 actual users will use the application for a period for particular business scenarios and at the same time we will run a unit test in load runner with one user, Also some one from database will start the monitoring the servers using Perfmon.
Conclusion: Instead of generating load from Load Generator Machine, we are generating it through the actual users and testing the performance (responsiveness of the application) of the application under load condition buy running one or two user test in loadrunner at the same time.
Note: We dont have virtual users and we can not use the actual user's credentials in LoadRunner to generate the load due to security issue.
Please provide your suggestion .
