before launch the survey site, we use Siege to test the LS. We cannot pass the 5000 users doing one survey at the same time.
anyone has the same experience?

5000 concurrent users is really a lot. I mean how many respondents will you invite to get 5000 concurrent respondents?

What happens when you reach 5000 users?

It is hard to say if what you are running into is a problem of Limesurvey or of hardware / server setup.
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

Yep,

And if you have 5 000 user with same Web-Link then you have only one link betwwen your server and survey web site.

You can use Some Content Delivery Network (CDN) (with updating some part in config) for CSS and JS file

But like holch say : 5000 user at same time atonly one website need big server. Not LS only.

We lack some "real caching" , please you can contribute : bugs.limesurvey.org/view.php?id=7988

In general, 5.000 users is not that much. But keep in mind that usually not all users access the survey at the same time. So better send invitation emails step by step and not all in one bun ch to lower such access peaks.

Of course, it also highly depends on your server and the related resources and of course the size of the survey. Running a survey in question by question mode should cause less problems compared to running a huge survey in all in one mode.

hi,

could you please give me some advise about the deployment for high concurrent issue.

I have test it base on a 4Core Xeon 2.0GHz 4G men server. running nginx as web server and php5-fpm plus mysql.

while i try to test 200 concurrent, the cpu run at 100% and it take average 35 seconds to open a 60 questions survey page.

thanks!

george

We have an LS instance running on a virtual server allocated 2.4Ghz with 2 gig RAM and a moderate 10gig of hard disc space. Currently running (with no issues) two surveys live to approximately 5,000 respondents (3,000 & 2,000 respectively) plus assorted others.

I must admit, I was moderately worried prior to launch, but I'm really very pleased at the performance.
