Distribute NeoLoad communication channels over different networks

During the test phase, NeoLoad conveys three distinct types of information:

Separating those information channels on distinct networks achieves the most efficient network setup.

To obtain a good trade-off between infrastructure costs and efficiency, it is advised to use remote Monitoring Agents in the application server sub-network. Particular attention must be paid to the firewall, if any, between the Cloud Load Generators and the application server.
