Subject Re: Real User Analysis

You should do it backwards, first you want to know how many users you want
to simulate. Then, what things do the different types of users in the
system, and finally "write the scripts" or compose the testplan.

Each type of user could be a thread group. You will have one thread for each
virtual user.
A thread (or virtual user) will do things over the system, HTTP requests,
JDBC requests, etc. And maybe a user could have loops and conditions.



How many users of each type you will have? you have to investigate that.
So, you are going to have as many threads as users.

If you want to know how many users you have in a instant in the test you
will have to analyze the logs of the test. (You have to log the results in a
file, and analyze the file)

this is a explanation in a very few words, there are much many other
problems to solve, you will need enough good data to do a good test, you
will need the hardware and to monitor all the environment, and other things
