Forum OpenACS Development: Re: cache statistics
I seriously doubt you need 40 threads for 35 concurrent users anyway, but only testing could prove that.
My assumption was I should calculate one thread per concurrent user and have a little bit of space for externals that access the site occasionally. Wrong?How could I test this?
However, on top on that, you have the fact that most users take a while to read each page. So, you need to calculate page loads per minute.
So our 10 threads above can serve 20 pages per second * 60 = 1200 pages per minute. If you have longer page generaton times, you need to adjust accordingly.
The most threads I have seen on any server is 35 threads. This application served some 20,000 to 35,000 users per week doing a multistep data entry/questionnaire application.
