Often, we don’t consider how many resources are used by the agent when simulating recorded traffic during load testing. We just record traffic, modify it in the way we need it, and set the required checks for the response and run a test with various numbers of users. If the station gets very loaded, we just decrease the number of users for a station. But, other options exist as well.
I will try to describe some parameters of operating systems that affect the traffic simulation process. We’ll try to figure out how to increase the number of virtual users for one station.
