The risk of collapse of what you have in place becomes important if the pre-production simulation is far from the reality of your users.
Artica offers a stress tool that reduces the risk of a degraded infrastructure and allows administrators to simulate user navigation.
The tool allows you to specify the number of users to be evaluated and the web requests that will be used for each virtual user.
This stress tool is available in community edition ( free of charge ), so you are free to use it..
It is available on Artica 4.30 Service Pack 339 or above
The performance of the Artica server that will perform the stress operations is not to be neglected, above 500 virtual users, it is necessary to increase the number of CPUs.
Do not use the stress tool to test Artica Proxy on itself.
