  • I have used tools like LoadRunner (Mercury->HP) in the past for load testing applications to the volume of couple thousand and used statistical extrapolation to create models on projected load and bottlenecks based on CPU, Network, Database, IO utilization, etc.,...  This could be more of a theoritical answer than what you may expect, but thats all I have got for now Smile
