Media Server testing

At 10:30 am load testing of the media server was performed. This testing involved an audio file that was over 19 minutes long (19:37) and 69 workstations with the real media client.

The clients were located in Wyatt 203, McIntyre 324, and basement of the library with a few clients in the I-Commons. The majority of these machines were connected to campus network via cabletron 6000 switches.

The test lasted for the length of the audio file. During that time, no adverse network activity was observed. The server was relatively uneffected as well. At most, 18% of the cpu was consumed for a brief period of time. No service related calls were logged by the Help Desk concerning network issues during the testing. It should be noted that this test was performed during Spring Break.
