Evaluating Agent Capacities - Blog graphic 2.pngAssuming you have defined a workload with a certain amount of virtual users and you have a pool of agents you can choose from. But when it comes to selecting agents, it is often hard to tell how many agents you need to execute the specified amount of virtual users. This is where Silk Performer's Evaluate Agent Capacity feature becomes useful. It will tell you, based on an evaluation run, how many virtual users a particular agent can handle.
