In a non-performance mode environment, we are trying to send about 10,000 requests with single user for one of the servicest and see significant increase in response times. Is there a maximum requests number that would not have the performance bottleneck/issue with a virtual service?
A functional VSE is capped at 10 transactions per second. So, theorethically if nothing else is testing against this VSE then your testcase would take about 16 minutes to complete. Is that your experience?
I asked the person who I was asking the question for and they said that was the case. They are going to investigate a bit further and pull back on the number of transactions sent. Thanks!
Also, just FYI, when the transaction throughput exceeds 10 transactions per second and the VSE starts to throttle the throughput you will find a message (I believe a WARNING) in the VSE.log stating this.
