For Load about 500 Concurrent... How much Ram should in My notebook???
For Load about 500 Concurrent...
How much Ram should in My notebook???
Or How much have I set Preference>>Memory Management when Load about 500 Concurrent to Prevent from Abnormal Termination cause by mdrv process termination while I load Test and "dwwin.exe" while I record???
There is Picture I've attached.

Summary: Accurate resource footprint information is not generally available. It is recommended that existing resource usage data is used and/or specific load tests are conducted (e.g. single Vuser) to allow resource usage to be measured.
When planning a load test it is necessary to consider what resources (cpu and memory) will be needed to generate the required load.
This information can then be used to choose suitable load generator systems and determine how many of these systems will be required.
Is resource footprint data available for the various protocols that are supported by LoadRunner to allow load generators to be sized accordingly?
Given the range of protocols that are supported by the LoadRunner product and the variety and complexity of scripts that may be used in load testing, it is not possible to provide accurate resource footprint information.
Instead it is recommended that when resource estimates are required existing resource measurements are used (from previous load tests) and/or specific tests (e.g. single Vuser) are conducted to enable the measurement of the resources being used.
A specific test approach is recommended as resource footprints are highly dependent on the specific application and systems in use. Such an approach will help ensure that the specific aspects of the IT infrastructure to be load tested are taken into account.
It is also recommended that resource usage is monitored during load testing to verify that the estimates match with actual experience. It is important to ensure that load generators do not become overloaded as this can render a load test invalid. For instance plan and monitor cpu usage to ensure that it does not exceed 80-90% of that available. If a load generator is allowed to become cpu bound then this may affect, for instance, load test response times.
If the protocol under test is threadsafe then run each Vuser as a thread to allows resources to be conserved while supporting more Vusers.
We are testing the FTP protocol with one controller and three Load Generators of 250 Users each.
My take from what HP explained is that each script will determine the amount of VUsers which a Load Gen can handle based on the ease or complexity of the script.
So the trick would be to test the Load Gen with one user to determine the CPU utilization of the LG then move from there so as not to exceed 80 to 90% of CPU of the Load Gen PC.
Don't even think of making Virtual Load Gen machines. This is a nightmare.
