Load Generator setup
What is ideal scenario to setup to the Loadgenerator machines? Our data center is moving to State "Y" from State"X and users will be accessing from state A(90% users). State B(10% users)
At this moment our client cannot afford for LG on cloud or stromrunner, so in this case what will be the ideal condition to setup the LG to mimic the real production sceanrio.
Should we setup Load generator at location "Y", close to Data center or in State A where max users will be accessing the application?
To my knowledge, we should setup LG's at State A to mimic the realistic sceanrio.
Can you please advise if that's correct approach.
Re: Load Generator setup
Ideally the Load Generators should be located where real users are going to access the application from. It is not always doable, you should consider whether the load you are going to generate over the network is going to impact the day to day work of employees at your company.
If you cannot locate the Load Generators in desired location you can use Network Virtualization to mimic the latency.
