Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 user load stress testing RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am a Dynamics CRM 2011 sys admin for a community charity providing in home healthcare and support to individuals referred to us by our local District Health Board. We are currently at the testing stage of a project to develop and implement a CRM patient management system and would like to test the configuration to see if it can handle the 200 District Nurse and Support Worker staff who will need to use the system when we go live.

    What I need to know is if anyone has had experience in user load stress testing for an on-premise Dynamics CRM 2011 system before and what the best approach might be for us to take to do this. We don't have a lot of money to spend on an off the shelf product (if there is one) or developing our own user load testing application. I have searched all the forum's and other CRM sites but I can't find anything to suggest what out best approach to solving the problem is or if we actually even need to perform user stress testing with the server configuration we have.

    Our application server is running Windows Server 2012 R2 with 6GB of RAM, 80GB System Drive, 40GB Data Drive, 20GB Log Drive and 2 x 2.50 GHz CPU.

    Our SQL Server is running Windows Server 2012 R2 and SQL Server 2012 R2 with 32GB of RAM, 80GB System Drive, 150GB Data Drive, 50GB Log Drive and 2 x 2.50 GHz CPU.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated thanks.
