Load Runner Production Volume and Vuser Setting

Hi
On an average, each week we get 190K to 202K user session in our online application.
(so 1150 to 1200 user sessions a day OR
18 - 20 user sessions a minute)
When we do the load runner scenario setting, what will be the ideal number of Vuser?
Can you please help?
Thanks in advance.
Regards, Kina


Load Runner version : 9.1
License Type : Permanent/Unlimited
Application For Load Test : SOA based Java Application.
App Server used : Tomcat
Protocol used for client communication with server : HTTP

Re: Load Runner Production Volume and Vuser Setting

Normally Loadrunner is used mostly to test how much load does ur application can handle.
So, u need to have information like
how many concurrent users are logging to ur application
how long should ur application used with a particular load

If u have the above info about ur application, u can simulate the same scenario with virtual users using loadrunner..

U said 18-20 user sessions a min but u need lot more info regarding how long will ur session exists and is it during the peek load time..

using load runner u need to simulate worst case and most case scenarios

Re: Load Runner Production Volume and Vuser Setting

Hi Kina,

as you mentioned, your application gets hit of 1.2K user in a day but they wont be accessing the same features. so you need to find out the peak load of a particular action for a specified amount of time. Also before running the scenario, Please try to find out all the business transactions and their corresponding loads. This will help you to get exact number of users.

Please let me know if you need more info.

Thanks,
Anurag
