Ten Customers at the Virtual Pet Shop

As we see, 10 customers can purchase 526 cats in a minute, or 8.8 cats per second. That's a lot of cats, especially for someone like me who is not especially a cat person. If you don't mind, I think we'll start buying dogs instead - it shouldn't affect the test results since both are 3 letter words, and it will help keep all the cats under control!

Perhaps a 2 minute test with 20 users is overkill - maybe 10 users over 1 minute is just as good if not better. It's definitely better for being shorter, and the total is sufficiently large as to save us from having to think in fractions. After all, we're testing our servers, not our brains!
