SalesForce Performance Testing with LoadRunner

Using the TruClient protocol, I have encoded vUser scripts that successfully handle SalesForce encryption.  My question relates to resources consumed by these TruClient scripts.  I have a test development load generator with 8 CPU & 32Gb RAM - during script validation testing, all 8 CPUs on the load generator redlined at 100%  when running 15 SalesForce TruClient vusers.  Is this the best that can be achieved, or are there some tweaks that would improve the vusers that such a server could handle?

Hi pkb1,

TruClient protocol will launch exactly real browser for each vusers when running scripts, that means it will consume almost the same resources that the reald browser requires. 

see http://tchelp.saas.hpe.com/en/12.53/Content/TruClient/procedures/_tc_t_how_to_calculate_load_generators.htm

Besides, different browers require different system resources, Chromium has higher CPU & RAM consumption than IE and Firefox.
