How to load test in full Cloud

For tests fully performed and managed in the Cloud, it may be useful to tune the scenarios in the on-premise Controller to optimize the testing environment, before setting the NeoLoad Cloud Controller and the Cloud Load Generators, as described in Select and configure the NeoLoad Cloud Controller and Select the Cloud Load Generators.

  1. Open your scenario in the on-premise NeoLoad Controller.
  2. Check the design of your scenario:

    For more information, see Configure the scenarios.
