Artificial "Global" Test Agents?

RE: Artificial "Global" Test Agents?
Don't use a proxy for performance testing (even if it is local). Browsers behave differently when going through a proxy. Trying to route a proxy remotely is even worse because you'll double the latency (and still have the full latency for resources served close to the real location).

If you can poke firewall holes or otherwise allow outside access to the web server where you run WPT your best option would be to use the EC2 AMI's I set up. You can spin testers up just for the time you want to do testing and then shut them down and the small spot instances are usually < $0.10 per hour. Here is the info on using the EC2 instances: https://sites.google.com/a/webpagetest.o...est-Agents

The EC2 AMIs are available in all of the regions they support (California, Virginia, Ireland, Singapore and Tokyo)
