change private instance agent type for each test - dileep_p - 07-27-2015 03:08 AM

Hi,

I tried to change the instance type of agent on ec2_locations.ini and restarted nginx. However the changes not taking effect untill wpt terminates agent by itself. Is the instance type of agent is caching on wpt web ? How can i ran same url with different instance types

The instance sizes are only used when the server starts new instances - it won't dynamically kill existing ones and resize. There's also no need to stop/restart nginx.

If you want to test different instance sizes simultaneously then you need different locations.
