WebPagetest on EC2

RE: WebPagetest on EC2
Pretty close. Are you talking about a WPT Monitor configuation (automated testing) or just a straight-up WebPagetest instance?

There are 2 parts to the system:

a) The windows+IE 'agents' which run the actual tests (and these are what the EC2 images are)
b) The WebPagetest 'web server' which houses the WebPagetest UI, results, test queues, etc (and has an automation API that can be used by WPT Monitor)

If you're running a monitor configuration then that can be run on the web server as well and it just posts the tests and gathers the results through WebPagetest's REST API.

For launching tests the 'agents' (a) poll the web server looking for work. If the web server has a job for them to do it responds with the job and then when the agent is done it posts the results back. All communications are originated from the agents to the web server (I even have some running behind NATs).

The only connection needed for communications is to port 80 on the web server. If you're concerned about rogue agents connecting to the agent queues you can assign secret keys to each location so only testers configured with the correct key will be able to communicate with the server.

Hopefully that makes sense (I'll have to create an actual diagram and put it on the wiki at some point).

Thanks,

-Pat
