Forgive my possible ignorance here but we're looking to test a live stream using the load testing tool from Wowza.
The load testing tool documentation says it can simulate 200-400 simultaneous pulls for each 'client' computer and I've been able to gather 9 computers to run the tool on, but I'm looking to simulate more than just a max of 3600 users at a time.
Is there an online service or anything available that we could use to simulate tens of thousands of users at one time without having to track down 30 computers in the office running the wowza tool?
If you're looking for a load test tool to simulate real world traffic from multiple users and possibly around the world, we provide a commercial plugin called UbikLoadPack Video Streaming Plugin which is integrated with the well known Open Source Apache JMeter.
It supports Apple HLS (VOD and Live) and MPEG-DASH as of March 2017.
It allows you to get useful metrics like lag, buffer fill time and lag ratio.
It is very simple to use and can be used from the Cloud through our partner offer or on premise on any Cloud.
