There is no way to answer that question.

It depends on your network, your server hardware and software, what the users are accessing, what they're doing, how many there are, whether you're hitting simple or complex pages, what your authentication system is, what browser they're using, and and and and.

All you can do is give us a rough idea of what you're actually looking for, and then test it yourself. Are you asking if Confluence can handle several thousand users normal access? Or are you really intending 1000 people to all hit the same page at the same time? Give us a feel for the usage and you might get something meaningful

Brough Thanks for the reply.

Can you please tell What is the number of simultaneous users who can access normally and in the case of accessing the same page.

i have given the maxThreads as 150 in my server configuration.Does it mean only 150 users can access the instance simultaneously.Is there any other place that i can configure to change the number of simultaneous access.

It's the same answer - it depends on your hardware and supporting software configuration.

As a random example, if you are using it off-the-shelf and everyone connects to the Tomcat and hits the same page, you'll get one result from a concurrent page hit. If you have Apache in front of it and caching enabled, the number will rise because Apache can serve from the cache.

There are hundreds of factors involved, and the only answer is "you have to test YOUR setup"

The number of threads is irrelevant really, it's not one per user.
