Unifico Load Tested with and without WCF Remoting


This is rather exciting to me; I just ran a few load tests on Unifico with and without remoting the services with WCF bindings. I knew the application could remote. The concern was how efficient. I created a quick web test that simply goes through the admin, lists the admin lists, performs a filter, edits and saves an item, then logs out. Roughly every action was hit (eh, it's a spike :)). I then setup the bindings and ran a load test remotely and locally (remotely being hosted on 127.0.0.1).

I like to call the operating point at about 75% cpu. This placed the local run at 282 req/s and the remote run at 214 req/s for a 75% efficiency in serializing all the service requests through WCF. It's a crude test, but a promising one at that! (Normally isolated servers are used, and a bunch of effort goes into the scenarios and analysis). The results are listed below, and the code is up on codeplex.
