We continue to have users explore new boundaries for testing. One user has completed 12 hour tests with over 5 Million Interactions run.
We also have users that are doing 100,000 in 1 minute.
We had one user start up 25 m3.2xlarge instances. It cost him $5.00 for an hour of Amazon rental time.
We recently did several upgrades to our database infrastructure that should allow for even higher levels of performance. We are creating a database table per test, thus
eliminating some bottlenecks for large scale tests (we have tests that are creating tables over 200MB). We are also creating some optimizations depending on how long the test will be running. For long running tests, we do not need to do updating of the UI every second.
Keep pushing the system and let us know your needs!
