A couple of times a year, clients love to hammer our servers with a massive load of registrations.
We anticipate 5000 – 7000 registrations in a short burst of time. So we setup our load testing software
and each of us enters approximately 500 concurrent users.
Then the count down begins…. and… go. hit the start button and the server is flooded with requests and we watch the results and see if everything is ok or code needs to be tweaked.
so far everything is working fine, but it’s still difficult to simulate a real & heavy registration day.
anyway, until the next load test.
