Deploying Load Generators on Linux Docker Distributions


according to the 12.56 notes, as a prerequisute we need to make sure Docker is installed on a Linux environment, and that iptables is running on the system. We would like to conduct a POC where we would have a Docker installed in AWS, then use it to spin up LG's as needed.

What size Linux machine would we need to build for a POC?

Re: Deploying Load Generators on Linux Docker Distributions


First, iptables should be either disabled or all Docker relevant ports should be open.

Second, there is no recommended size, if you create an extra-large Linux machines you will be able to run more powerful LG's, but it is not necessary.

take a note that in order or spin up LG's as needed (dynamically during test execution) you need to work with Kubernetes installed on the Linux machine and some pre-configuration and knowledge is required.

Re: Deploying Load Generators on Linux Docker Distributions


I suggest looking at LoadRunner & Performance System Requirements and refer to the Load Generator requirements. Based on that you can conclude which machine(s) you want to allocate.

Check out this YouTube video for a quick reference and this blog post for more details.

If needed we can arrange a meeting to discuss it and advice.
