[ejabberd] benchmarking ejabberd

Hi Jorge,
I understand that Tsung can simulate a user but can it send more then one request simultaneously?
I guess it can send requests very very fast so it is the same requests/sec as desired.
Can it imitate the real world when concurrent clients can send requests simultaneously and not just with a high frequency?

Hi Pablo,
Tsung simulates a whole interaction with the server. You pretty much
have to create the users in the server, and then tsung will simulate a
login, presence changes, messaging, roster transactions, etc.
The tricky part is getting a configuration that gives you the
information you need, the documentation is pretty extensive on how it
works, I'd start by taking a look at that, there are also some config
examples on the net that might be useful.
