Denamik LoadGen can perform load- and stresstest on SBC and VDI environments by to simulate users. To distribute the load systems called ‘LoadBots’ are used to generate the load, resulting in an architecture with horizontal scaling capabilities.
Before a system is called a LoadBot an agent needs to be installed. The installation of the LoadBot is done from the central management console, the Director. The installation is pushed to the remote system and results in a small service running in the background. The LoadBot can be (de)activated on demand from the central management console.
In this article I’ll explain the steps involved when installing (or activating) the LoadBot software on a remote machine. There are some common issues (like name resolution, firewall configuration, etc.) that I’ll explain as well.
