Once you signed up, you will be automatically loggedIn, and you can take a tour on our user guide. Two shared Measuring Agents are now assigned to your user account. Also for customers (user accounts) who do not operate their own HTTP/S Remote Proxy Recorder, a temporary HTTP/S Remote Proxy Recorder from a pool is now assigned each time they sign-in.
Once you had quick tour on our user guide, you can set up your test scripts here, either by recording the browser or mobile traffic by the HTTP/S Remote Proxy Recorder or set up API test scripts directly from the HTTP Test Wizard.
Setting Up Measuring Agents
In order to debug and execute a load test, you’ll need at least a Measuring Agent (= load generator).
There are 3 ways to set up Measuring Agents:
- If you have Cloud Credits (20 free CC already credited at sign up), you can easily launch cloud-based Measuring Agents directly from the portal server. Additional Cloud Credits can be purchased at the Real Load Store.
- You can launch cloud-based Measuring Agents with the Desktop Companion (locally installable Windows program) under your own AWS account, whereby you can use pre-built AWS EC2 AMIs.
- You can also download the Measuring Agent software and install it on your own servers. After that you can register your Measuring Agent(s) at the portal server.
Option 2 and 3 do not require any Cloud Credits.
