Question:

What are the recommendations on the number of tests the SRM AIM can handle per agent server?

Answer:   

  • There is no strict rule but there is a soft limit for the SRM AIM.
  • The amount of tests depends on hardware and also heavily depends on the type of tests being run.
  • For example the HTTP(S) test is more resource intensive than a plain TCPConnect test.
  • With max_thread between 100-200 SRM could, on a dual-core system, handle 500-1000 tests.
