This is where you use a technique known as "arithmetic". For example: You have 100 clients sending requests once every two seconds. One client means 0.5 requests per second, 100 clients mean 100 times that, which is 50 requests per second.

Next piece of arithmetic: how long will the server take to process those requests? First we need to know how long it will take to process one request. And we don't know that yet. So over to you... how long does your server take to process one such request?
