Load Testing Guidelines


In order to gather metrics on our system's ability to handle increased loads and users, we have performed tests to evaluate the maximum number of concurrent users a Rasa assistant can handle with certain machine configurations. In each test case we spawned the following number of concurrent users at peak concurrency using a spawn rate of 1000 users per second. In our tests we used the Rasa HTTP-API and the Locust open source load testing tool.

Up to 80,0006vCPU, with almost 90% CPU usage16 GB

Debugging bot related issues while scaling up

To test the Rasa HTTP-API ability to handle a large number of concurrent user activity we used the Rasa Pro tracing capability along with a tracing backend or collector, such as Jaeger, to collect traces for the bot under test.


Our team is currently in the process of running additional performance-related tests. More information will be added here as we progress.
