Types of Users for Load Testing

Performing load testing on your site means you are open to different scenarios that may occur. However, those scenarios can only occur when you consider certain factors. One of them is the users. In this case, there are two types of users – concurrent users and simultaneous users.

Concurrent users are people connected to a website or application over long periods, irrespective of the type of request made. On the other hand, simultaneous users are people who perform the same activity at specific periods on your website or application.
