Pb with specific location - Guillaume Gracieux - 04-11-2019 08:54 PM

Since september last year, we are monitoring our website perfs using webpagetest (Strasburg_FR Location). All went right until 3 weeks ago when we started to receive "Invalid location" response.

We checked everything and we can't figure how come we get those "Invalid location" response, specialy because
- Strasburg_FR appears as a valid location in https://www.webpagetest.org/getLocations.php?f=html
- Tests runs ok @Strasburg_FR when launched through webpagetest.org

I'm totaly aware i could switch to others locations but Strasburg_FR is kind of our baseline and we'd like to keep it that way if that location is still open for tests.

Any Help on that matter would be greatly appreciated.

Quick example below to reproduce the problem (I used RESTED for Firefox)
