Load Generator server spec for 8000 vusers

Proposed physical server spec is 2x12 core 2.2GHz CPU with 256GB RAM

8000 Vusers using HTTP (not Truclient).

Is 2 machines enough to share load of 8000 Vusers with one taking on full load should one fail?

Thoughts much appreciated.

The answer very much depends on the heaviness of your script, but generally speaking, i would use 3-4 machines for 8,000 Web HTTP vusers. Two may be not enough.
