Test Client Servicing More Than One Request Queue - james.ward - 06-01-2013 02:11 AM

I'm new to WebPageTest, so please forgive any nomenclature mistakes.

Is it possible to have a single test client receiving test requests from more than one Private Instance? IE - two Private Instances feeding a single test client.

Thank you,
James

In a way, yes. You can have private instances "relay" tests to other private instances. The agent still only polls for work from one instance but the other one can have a location that is configured that relays the work to the main instance. Relayed tests are not kept on the destination server, the test is literally just sent there for the agent to do the work and then downloaded again.
