Estimate of max concurrent users


I’m trying to increase the performance of a woo commerce based store, which currently crashed their linux based host at 200 concurrent users running standard apache setup. Even upping the spec to 32GB of ram and 8 CPUs, the server still crashes. The main reason is it’s a standard out-the-box setup running on apache.

With 10GB of ram and 4 CPUs, roughly what would the concurrent users threshold be? Or if it’s easier, if i want to get to 2000 concurrent users, roughly what kind of spec would i need?

I tried a clean install on nginx and varnish, which seemed ok, but hard to get right.



There is no fixed answer, also its depend upon no. of things like coding, themes, plugins used on your website.

Also you can test your server using
