+## Throughput test
+The throughput test determines the maximum throughput a user can get out of the system while
using a single action. The action used again is a noop, so the numbers are plain OpenWhisk
overhead. Note that the throughput does not directly correlate to end-to-end latency here,
as the system does more processing in the background as it shows to the user in a blocking
invocation.

+- 4 HTTP requests at a time (concurrency: 4) (basically CPU cores * 2 to exploit some buffering)
