I have been using WAPt for 3 years now and am reasonably familiar with it but got stumped by a new challenge. I have a test that ran with 2 virtual users for 1 hour by executing about 1900 sessions. One of my request is a logon request and I have parametrized this with an initial variable list and I marked to use this list for each new session. My test ran for the 1 hour duration with 2 virtual users by using different userid and pwd for each SEssion. I didnt get any errors.

Next I ran the test with 20 virtual users for 20 mins. My test failed immediately with web service errors. My question is if I want to see whether my application can support concurrent connections and can act like a truly threaded application, should I parametrize the sessions or the users?

I think your web server was overloaded.
