Sun Java System Access Manager 7.1 Performance Tuning and Troubleshooting Guide

Determine the Number of Test Users

In the following example baseline test, 200 users per one AM instance are used. For your tests, you could use 200 users for one Access Manager instance, 400 users for two Access Manager instances, 600 users for three Access Manager instances, and so forth. If the workload is too low, start with 100 users, and increase it by increments of 100 to find out the minimum number. Once you have determined the minimum test users per AM instance, use with this number for the rest of the tests to make the results more comparable.
