I would like to know if anyone has done any load testing on using managed .NET Client Side Object Model (CSOM)?

I am mainly looking for metrics (graphs, spreadsheets, etc.) on the following:

  • Large document libraries

    The effects of large number of clients trying to query document libraries with large number of documents.

  • Document libraries with large files

    The effects of large number of clients trying to download these large files simultaneously

I would like to get an idea on the threshold limits. I know this depends on a lot of factors, for example network speed, etc. But, I would like to get a general idea so I can handle these limits better my code.

I have found this technet article showing the limits and boundaries of SP 2010. It might be helpful when you try to plan your SP solution.


But there is no mention of CSOM :(


As far as I know, Microsoft is yet to release any documents/case study which focuses on the performance of the Client Object Model. I have searched extensively for it and the closest thing I found is how to increase efficiency of queries for the Client Object Model: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff798388.aspx
