Description Angel Mazadiego 2005-03-17 09:54:25 UTC
When i run a test load with remote testing feature and webservices request, the
server logs load times with errors. These times include time delays due to
jmeter    problems.

I'm not sure I understand the problem. Is the test setup this.

1. you have a webservice test plan that uses the webservice sampler
2. you're using multiple systems to do remote testing

Is that accurate. I should warn you that webservices scale horribly with respect
to concurrent load. If the xml parser your application is using is slow and eats
a ton of RAM, it's going to be hard to handle 20 concurrent webservice requests
on a 2.4ghz P4 system or 2ghz althon system.  This is from benchmarking with IIS
+ .NET and crimson for Java with tomcat.

with just one system, you can easily overload a webservice on the serverside.
especially if the webservice is making a call to a remote database and doing
real work.

More information is needed to figure out exactly the cause.
