Setting Up Mobile Testing on EC2 AMI - shiv - 07-16-2015 04:07 AM

Hi guys,

I recently set up a private instance on EC2 using an AMI and tests seem to be running fine. However, I'd like to test on mobile devices (iOS or Android) like you can on in the Browser options on webpagetest.org. I've googled how to set this up, but I'm very lost. Are there any good guides or suggestions on how to set up a mobile test agent on EC2?

Thanks!

You can't run actual mobile test agents on EC2 itself - they use physical android or iOS devices. You can set up a location on the EC2 server to serve as the front-end and UI but you're going to need physical phones and a PC to drive the testing.
