Could network throughput be bottleneck in load testing?
Posted on 2010-11-29
I have made 4 times load testing for web portal, which located in the internet.
Each time load testing scenario is same, but number of virtual users are different.
Response time percentiles and response time per page looks reasonable. When number of users are incresed, there are moe waiting for end-users.
However, as a network throughout I get 2MBit/Sec for all 4 tests.
Does this mean that network band is bottleneck and it twists results?
(Load testing sofware is Proxy Sniffer, but problem should be generic)
