First of all you need to simulate realistic usage of your application with anticipated amount of users (refer the project requirements for exact number), this is known as Load testing

Then normally you should test how your application behaves under a sustained load, like put it under the load and leave for a prolonged amount of time, from several hours to several days, this is called Soak Testing.

After that most probably you will need to know the breaking point, i.e. how many maximum users can be supported, what sort of errors start occurring when the application under test cannot serve that much load any more, does the system recover when the load comes back to normal, etc. - this is Stress Testing.

See Performance Testing vs. Load Testing vs. Stress Testing article for more detailed explanation of the above testing types, but keep in mind that your test needs to be as realistic as possible, otherwise it does not add much value.
