Injector configuration

Formula for calculating power requirements

CPU

−    Number of hits generated by test = Nb_VUs / Average Processing Time per page * 20

Memory

−    Memory. recommended = 300 MB + Nb_VUs*150Kb

     Example: A test of 2000 users with an average processing time of 30 seconds between each page
  • Hits/s = 2000/30*20, which equals 1333 hits/s
  • Memory = 300 MB + 2000 * 150 Kb, which equals 600 MB
  • Recommended injector: P4 2.4 GHz + 1 Gig of Ram
Network
  • 2 network cards, one for the control console, the other for the injector, in order to avoid possible conflicts.
  •  No HUB; always connect the different machines with a Switch in Full Duplex mode. A Hub generates considerable network collisions, which has a significant impact on the performance of application to be tested.
