I have a project that will be assigned to me soon whereby I need to develop a survey which needs to support 40,000 users approximately. Now we are thinking of doing a staged approach so not all users are on the server at any one point of time. Probably splitting it so we can serve at least a few thousand of users...
I dont have much experience of how I can ensure to serve those levels of users on a server and how to manage this so I am after some advice?
From my understanding I need to do some stress testing on a server and obviously I need some figures i.e. average size of request, average size of response and content of response. Now I am unsure how to collate this so need some guidance?
- Do I have to build the database and add records in to see what size is a typical survey row?
- Do I have to build the survey in .NET i.e. by adding controls etc and seeing what size is the page?
- The survey shouldnt be too instensive processing wise, it will be adding information into a backend sql database...
Many thanks in advance
