Yes, that would be fairer. First come, first served.

Alternatively allow multiple concurrent logins with the same id.

But is that how the application is supposed to be used?

Are there really going to be multiple users with the same login?

If so, then it's going to be tricky to manage when someone is no

new password.

Apart from the problems of tracking who is actually using the system.

If there are multiple different admin logins, then you can use JMeter
to test these in parallel.
