Can we run multiple IE/Pagespeed.exe configurations on a single agent? - mverkerk - 08-06-2011 04:43 AM

I apologize if this has already been asked/answered ... is it possible to run IE7 and Pagetest.exe and Chrome on a single agent and offer them as three different test locations?

If so, how would i configure urlBlast.ini? There is only one directive for 'Location' in there ...

What is PageTest.exe? is it the same as IE7 or IE8?

locations.ini:

[locations]
1=Test_loc
default=Test_loc

[Test_loc]
1=IE7
2=IE7noDyn
3=Chrome
default=IE7
label=IE7

[IE7]
browser=IE 7 dynatrace
;browserExe=pagetest.exe
latency=0
label="IE7 (dynatrace)"
;key=TestKey123

[IE7noDyn]
browser=IE 7
browserExe=pagetest.exe
latency=0
label="IE7 (no dynatrace)"
;key=TestKey123

[Chrome]
browser=Chrome 12
latency=0
label="Chrome"
;key=TestKey123

urlBlast.ini:

; Directory that has the one-off tests to run
Url Files Url=http://localhost:8080/work/
Location=IE7
;Location Key=TestKey123

Pagetest.exe is just a container for IE and is an either/or - use IE unless you have problems with plugin compatibility. Chrome and IE can run on the same machine though - just run both wptdriver and urlblast and they will make sure that only one of them will be running a test at a time.
