I am looking into simulating large number of chat simulations to assess the kind of hardware it will take us to deploy openfire. I tested the openfire functionality using simple XMPP based logins and chat messages. I now need to test fastpath. I need to be able to see several users logged into workgroups and stuff like that.
Logging into a fastpath account seems a little more complicated than logging into an openfire account.
What do you think would be the best approach to load test the system like this? Also, if there are resources out there relating to how spark logs the users into fastpath accounts, it would be awesome (that way I could extend my scripts). I could look into the source files but that seems too overwhelming.
Thanks in advance,
