Experimenting with running Goose load tests from AWS, Goose has proven to make fantastic use of all available system resources, so that it is only generally limited by network speeds. A smaller server instance was able to simulate 2,000 users generating over 6,500 requests per second and saturating a 2.6 Gbps uplink.
