3 Concurent License Performance Testing

3 Concurent License Performance Testing

3 Concurent License Performance Testing


We are currenly running Crystal Reports 8, and moving towards Crystal Reports 11.  We have a number of IIS Web Applications that reside on a web server that invoke CR by using the RDC method.

From what I have read, I believe that this upgrade will limit us to 3 concurrent process licenses.  I have also read that the 4th request will be queued and wait for the Crystal Reports engine to complete... this could cause performance issues based on the length of time each of the existing reports takes to process.

So,before moving ahead with the upgrade I would like to test what impact the upgrade will have on our Web applications.  Can anyone suggest a testing method or tool that would prove that the Crystal Report engine is in fact queuing these requests, and would show what the impact would be when the number of requests go up.

Has anyone else performed this type of testing?  What were your results?
