While testing you can select geographical zones to start LI Servers and emulate virtual users. LoadView uses Load Injector Servers from Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). Load Injector Servers can be generated from 17 geographical zones. Dotcom-Monitor can instantiate up to 500 Load Injectors per AWS zone and 1500 Load Injectors per GCP zone.
The number of LI Servers and the number of virtual users on each LI Server will be calculated automatically based on the LoadView scenario, the number of zones and the calibration results if used. However, you can adjust the distribution of the LI servers and thus users between different zones.
To test your website from more than one geo-zone, if necessary, on the Test Scenario page add additional zones:
- In the Load Injector Geo Distribution section, click Add Zones and select the necessary zone check boxes you need to add.
- If necessary, adjust virtual users allocation among zones using the sliders in zone rows. To fix the virtual user allocation for the particular zone, click the lock button in the zone line.
Also, each LoadView test will have one Reference Server to measure reference test results for device state verification while testing.
