Poor performance when running Adaptive model with high user load



While performing application performance testing, performance slows when running an Adaptive model. On removing the Adaptive model shape from the Strategy and running the performance tests, the results were much better. User needs to complete each step of the use case in the performance testing within 3 seconds or less at the 90th percentile level. Adaptive model has about 150 Predictors. 

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

1. Run the Performance test for 1000 users.
2. After ramping up to 1000 users, performance degrades significantly.
3. Performance appears good up to 700 - 1000 users, then degrades. Treatment and Accept steps response times start to rise to tens of seconds.

Root Cause

Audit Notes on the adaptive model was enabled which was contributing to slowness.


Disable “Audit Notes” on the Adaptive model in the application to resolve the issue.
