Can we test 1000 users using stages in k6 on local using export options?
Yes, the only limit to the number of VUs locally is the capability of your machine. More VUs require more CPU and RAM. Exactly how much more depends on the complexity of your test script, though the requirements should scale roughly linearly.
If you’re having trouble with many VUs, take a look at these articles in the documentation: https://k6.io/docs/testing-guides/running-large-tests and https://k6.io/docs/misc/fine-tuning-os
Thanks a lot @ned this was helpful
