Tutorial for Private Agent Installation - andreapernici - 04-04-2013 11:07 PM

Is there a tutorial on How to install a private instance of the Agent on a Windows VPS and is there any minimal hardware requirement for doing that?

The configuratin in a VM is the same as a physical machine: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.org/docs/private-instances#TOC-Test-Machine-s-1

If it is running in a VPS you need to make sure that the virtualization is full machine virtualization so you can install device drivers like dummynet.

I usually allocate the VM's 1 GB of Ram, 20GB of HDD and 1 CPU.

Ok Thanks Patrick.

Sorry I have another doubt.

To install the Agent I also need installing Apache or Apache is only needed for the WPT code?

Apache is only needed for the web UI. The agent code is all stand-alone (besides from the browsers).
