IIS load taking capacity RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am sure what i am going to ask here can attract lot of critism because the question is so open but i need data from people out here based on your experience.

    For an average and a complex web application, what is the avarage number of request wich can be handled by IIS before pushing requests in queue. I do understand that it also depend on number of CPU, RAM, Apppool and network bandwidth on a system, but assume that you can take these to maximum possible and there is only one application running on t hat IIS.

    Any data which you have based on your past experience would be very helpful for me along with application characteristics which is installed on that IIS.

    WCat 6.3 (x86)
    Web Capacity Analysis Tool (WCAT) is a lightweight HTTP load generation tool primarily designed to measure the performance of a web server within a controlled environment.  WCAT can simulate thousands of concurrent users making requests to a single web site or multiple web sites.  The WCAT engine uses a simple script to define the set of HTTP requests to be played back to the web server. Extensibility is provided through plug-in DLLs and a standard, simple API.
