mdrv.exe processes creation

Hi All,

I've 5 scripts in a scenario and configured 10 load generators for all the scripts. That means every script run on every machine. So in this case, how many no. of mdrv.exe processes will be created on each load generator? Would it be based on the no. of scripts or no. of scenarios or something else?

Could you please clarify this? Appreciate early response. Thanks.

Re: mdrv.exe processes creation


As always, it depends...

One factor is if you set to run as process or thread in the runtime settings. If set as process, there will be a 1:1 ratio.

If set as thread, it will also depend on the ramp-up. At least one process will be created every start, if gradual is specified.

Each group (and script) will also have it's own process.
