Session Digital: Magento Ecommerce Blog

Serving 4 million page requests an hour with Magento Enterprise

In order to better understand Magento Enterprise’s capacity to serve the needs of some of our larger clients, Session Digital conducted a series of tests on how Magento performs under load.

We wanted to understand Magento’s performance and scaling capabilities not with just a few products and categories, but with a much larger catalogue and under the realistic peak load of one of the UK’s biggest online retailers. We also wanted to test with real user journeys rather than just requests to specific pages or checkout functionality, to closely mimic the real world conditions of running a leading online store on Magento.
