We are planning to test over 1000 concurrent test taker with win 2008 server with wampserver, is this feasible?
If you are talking about hard concurrency, of 1000 test-takers login in and moving through the test at the same time, I would unfortunately say No.
We've been able to run up to 1000 test-takers concurrently on a fine-tuned single Linux machine, for a simple test using some performance tweaks (see https://hub.taocloud.org/articles/administrator-guide/data-abstractions).
But we've been unable to reproduce these results using WAMP on a Windows server. This is likely due to the fact that we're not experts in this domain, but if you are well-versed with WAMP and Windows 2008 you might be able to make it work as efficiently.
If you do, we would be very interested in hearing about your setup. But either way I would strongly advise you to run a load-test before running the actual test.
Pls is there a step by step guide on how to configure TAO on Linux and possibly on ubuntu or debian variant
With so few information it is quite difficult to provide you with an answer.
It depends not only on your system or your AMP stack but also:
- on your server specifications (hardware)
- on your network configuration and mainly your bandwidth and latency
- on your TAO configuration, preferably tweaked with such documentation.
Using TAO 3.2 (available soon) with the new 'diagnostic tool' extension may give you a rough estimation of what your setup will support.
We wouldn't recommend any AMP solution hosted on a Windows OS even for a medium-scale test delivery.
