Hourly tests backing up - cici - 03-05-2013 07:16 AM

I have WPT 2.9 installed on a dedicated box and I am using the AMI test clients. I have been putting a custom front-end on it so I can automate it more easily. Everything was working fine until I set up a few to run hourly. The test were not finishing in a timely manner so they were backing up and the queue grew to over 100 tests. What is the optimal configuration to run say 10 - 20 at the same time on an hourly basis?

Thanks!

Depends on how long each page load takes and how many runs each of the tests are for. If the page takes 1 minute to load and you are running 10 runs, first and repeat view then each test will take 20 minutes.
