Load Balance Tests
Hi All,

Quick question, is it possible to load balance tests across multiple nodes?

Maybe having two testing nodes configured the same? (i.e looking at the same /jobs directory). I'm using WPT for monitoring our websites but this becomes difficult when the node dies :-)

Thanks

RE: Load Balance Tests
Yes. That's actually how the Dulles location for webpagetest.org is configured. There are 16 agents all configured with the same location ID pulling from the same work queue. The HTTP Archive has 95 machines pulling from a single location and I've had as many as 500 at one point.

The agents basically get the work on a first-come first-served basis but the system fully supports multiple agents working for a given location.
