Not going into specifics on the specs since I know there is no real answer for this. But I've been doing load testing today with the
ab command in apache.
And got to the number of 70 requests per second (1000 requests with 100 concurrent users), on a page that is loading from 4 different DB tables, and doing some manipulation with the data. So it's a fairly heavy page.
The server isn't used for anything else for now and the load on it is just me, since it's in development. But the application will be used daily by many users.
But is this enough? Or should I even worry (just as long as it's over X requests a second)
I'm thinking that I shouldn't worry but I'd like some tips on this.
