If you are using Silk Performer regularly over a longer period of time, you might run into the situation where one of your running load tests is suddenly aborted. This may be the case when the connection between controller and agent breaks, which can have a number of reasons.
It might happen that an agent unexpectedly goes down or that an ordinary power cut occurs. In any case - with Silk Performer's recovery feature, you can recover the data that had been collected up to that point. We'll show you how, in this blog post.
In this blog post, we'll take you through the improved CloudBurst workflow of Silk Performer 17. Take a look at the graphic below - it shows the workflow we will pursue in this article. We'll start with the registering process to create a new CloudBurst account, then we're going to estimate the costs of a cloud load test using the credit calculator on the Cloud Portal.
Next, we're going to prepare and execute the cloud load test using the Cloud Agent Manager and the Workbench. And finally, when the cloud load test is completed, we'll review the costs in the Workbench and on the Cloud Portal. If you haven't yet tried out Silk Performer CloudBurst, this blog article will help you to get started.
