How many virtual users do you need to simulate in your tests?

​Load testing is not just for peak seasons in your business. It is necessary for all time when you have active users.

During the pandemic, we all recognized that unexpected situations may occur and the businesses (ecommerce, carriers, telecommunication, finance...etc) which were ready for unexpected high traffic, adapted to the changing circumstances easily and quickly.

To determine how many virtual users you need, you should take your highest traffic as basis and add an additional %10 traffic to that level, to stay in the safe zone.

How often do you need to run load testing?

This depends on the industry you are in and its peak seasons. As Loadium, we suggest running a load test after each deployment.

What is Sandbox?

You can run a test without charging your package to be sure your test is running. When you check the SandBox option, the parameters set are as following:

  • Engine Count: 1

  • Thread Count: 5

  • Ramp Up Time: 30sec

  • Iteration: ∞

  • Duration: 1min
