I was wondering if anyone here had encountered performance problems with the Moodle assignment tool?
For example you occasionally see posts like "I had a quiz with 300 students, and a half-hour time-limit, and when time expired, and all the student's quiz attempts got submitted, my server crashed."
Does stuff like that happen with the assignment tool? I don't recall seeing a post like that, but a Google search does not find much.
I also searched in the tracker (https://tracker.moodle.org/issues/?jql=component%20%3D%20Assignment%20AND%20component%20%3D%20Performance) finds a few issues, most of which have been fixed.
I guess I am hoping someone can say something like "we had an assignment where 1000 students all had to submit a 10MB file by 18:00pm one Friday afternoon. Most of them left it to the last minute, and still we did not experience any problems".
Also, has anyone got a script (e.g. JMeter) for load-testing mod-assign?
Thanks in advance.
