Load runner Installation implications on server
I have an application hosted on AWS, on which i need to do performance testing.
Is it ok to install the Load Runner on my laptop, instead of hosted server and what are the implications , like latency and others ?
Re: Load runner Installation implications on server
1st of all - this is the StormRunner Load community forum, for all LoadRunner related questions, please use the LoadRunner partcitioners forum here.
2nd - if you plan to run a load test from a single installation of LoadRunner, I'd recommend against installing it on your laptop as it will not be able to carry out the load (that is assuming you want to run a load of more than 50 Vusers).
if you application is open to the Internet, you have several options:
- You can run the load from your data center and make sure you have outbound access to the Internet.
- You can use cloud load generators on AWS to better access the application
- You can use StormRunner Load that is completely cloud based.
Hope this helps,
