This August saw the SciVisum load test team tackle one of its biggest challenges, with a recent client load testing project seeing records break and the traffic sent through the site reaching remarkable levels. With the team conducting three days of load testing – one more than the anticipated two days scheduled – and overcoming the challenge presented by last-minute user journey changes, SciVisum was able to deliver remarkable capacity like never before.

As part of the SV-Load managed service provided, the team achieved performance that saw:

  • 800,000 concurrent users
  • 203,000 user journeys per minute
  • 1.2 million pages per minute
  • 1.3 million HTTP requests per second
  • 240Gb/s of content downloaded

Testing was conducted without any major technical problems, providing the client with high-capacity load testing and delivering actionable results to ensure optimum user experience. Such performance broke all previous records associated with load testing at SciVisum, demonstrating the level of expertise possessed by the team and the ability to exceed expectations.
