    I am currently using Telerik trial version. Please answer for the following queries..

    01.  Can I create multiple Agents(more than two or three) in my load testing project while using Telerik trial version..??

    02. If so how could I create multiple Agents in the load testing project..??

    03. When we assign another machine as an Agent I have installed Telerik studio (full trial version) in that separate machine as well. In this case is  it necessary to install Run time edition or when we install Telerik studio doesn't it automatically install Run time edition..??If not please send me the link to down load Run time edition..

    Hello Krish,

    Thank you for taking the time to evaluate Test Studio. I will do my best to completely answer your questions:

    1) Yes you can. The trial is not limited to 1 or 2 or 3 agents. You are free to setup as many agents as you desire. You're only limitation in trial is the number of Virtual Users, 20 to be specific.

       a) Install Test Studio trial on as many machines as desired to be setup as load agents.
       b) Stop all services except Load Agent
       c) Configure all the Load Agents to connect to your Load Controller

    3) When you purchase your full Test Studio license you will also need to purchase one license to our Run-Time edition ($199 retail) per load agent computer, uninstall Test Studio trial, and install the Run-Time edition on it instead. The configuration will remain intact through this process.

    There is no trial to our Run-Time edition. That edition is simply a stripped down version of full Test Studio. You will be given the link to download it after purchasing your licenses.

    Hey Cody

    I have a virtual box machine on the same network using a bridge network configuration

    I have my real machine as controller and reporter, but can't see the load agent configured on the virtual box

    What can i do to make my agent visible and added?

    Hi Alberto,

    A common problem that blocks connections to our Load Agent process is firewall and/or anti-virus software. The Load Agent process runs on port 8011 by default (unless you change this). You will need to make sure that this port is not being blocked on the VM by some software.

    In addition the Load Agent process makes a connection to the Load Controller and Load Reporter on the other machine. The default is for those processes to run on ports 8012 and 8013. Please make sure these ports are not blocked by your firewall or any other software running on your main box.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
