You're right... I guest I could do something like that - with each tsunami instance using a distinct set of XMPP users. The only problem I have with that is that I have significantly less tsunami load gen hosts than I do XMPP connection managers. It seems like I would need at least a 1:1 ratio to get this to work, as I can only run one tsunami instance per client host (I think!).

It's not a perfect solution, but a possible way to do this would be to just<br>copy your <session> for as many servers as you have and change the host<br>name to the web server IPs instead of the load balancer IP.<br>
<br>My .xml file is generated by a system we built internally that can easily<br>loop around templates like this which would make this easy to do, but<br>unfortunately, our tool is not public so I can't send a copy to you.
<br>Something like M4 might do the trick, however.<br><br>-Mark<br><br>Jason Tucker wrote:<br>> Hi,<br>><br>> I'm working on troubleshooting a capacity issue in our environment, and got<br>> to thinking about something that would really help me out...
