Just did a stress test with 10,000 users over 1 minute. Works very well, I think this was WAY more effective than Load Impact, but I think load impact is for more long term tests (over like 10 or 20 minutes).

Wow, so cool! How many timeouts were you getting at 10k??

Here's my 256mb node server instance... no DB calls though.
263 hits/sec with a 425ms req with 828 users... not bad for $3 lol.

It was a lot of timeouts but its wordpress (le sigh). I also havent scaled the server way up yet, mostly was just playing around.

2nd run with the same app at app fog. They let you have up to 2GB of ram so I maxed that out. The only catch is they don't allow custom domains for free, and the lowest paid plan is the same specs with domain and SSL for $50

Much better this time... 2213 hits/sec before it timeouts go to 4/sec - 23ms/2300 users.
I wonder how much I could shave a bit off by sending static assets to a cdn...

What type of page/content were you serving?

It was a very basic brochure like page for a friend. He want's to implement a chatroom so I thought it would be a great opp for learning websockets in node =)

It's basically static but it was written in Jade so I think the server stores the templates/partials in memory and the renders them on ea request. There's also a bit of overhead with gzipping. Ideally having nginx in front would be ideal!
