Hi Mechlowicz,

 

To determine the required number of load generators:

  1. Record a script using your specific protocol.

  2. Replay a single Vuser in Controller and check the average CPU and the peak memory consumption of the mdrv.exe process by adding a counter for % Processor Time and Private Bytes.

  3. Based on your load generator hardware and the CPU and memory consumption of a single Vuser, calculate the number of Vusers per machine.

Hopes this will help you out.
