MI Listner & Load Generator

Do anyone know if a Load test can be done using a load generator that sits before the firwall and pass the load through the mi listener. ( The application servers are on the otherside of the firewall, the vusers will also be on the other side of the firewall).

Re: MI Listner & Load Generator

The purpose of the MI Listener is to run vusers over firewalls or monitor servers over firewalls. The MI Listener and the controller should be in one side of the firewall and the Load Gens should be on the other side of the firewall where the application under test resides... Don't worry about the MI Listener performance, it won't even feelt he pain or the workload of transmiting stats back to the controller. When load testing overfirewall, performance ( transaction response times)does not get affected because the laod generators will be sitting in the same network as the servers under test (not much network latency). The only data that will be crossing the firewalls via the MI Listener is the statistics resulting from the load test.

Not sure I understood your load testing setup (environment), so i just gave you a brief description of how MOFW is done.

Hope that helped...
