Subject Re: [GENERAL]Perf Testing on virtualized servers

Kirk is completely right. No doubt.

Virtualisation can be useful when building a test rig to use as injectors /
generators. But it is a disaster if you try and virtualise the test system
(the AUT) if your production is not also virtualised. 

This is arguably worse than trying to use a scaled down environment for load
testing and then extrapolating the results up. That generally doesn't work
