On-Premise Load Agents


  1. On the controller, in the Other Options -> Load Agents section of the Workflow Tree, the grid displays agents attached to the controller.
  2. The first agent called Local is the controller by itself.
  3. To attach a new agent, on the grid’s toolbar, click Connect Load Agent.
  4. Enter required connection properties: Agent Name, Host name or IP address without "//", Port, Username, and Password
  5. Click Test Connection. If a pop-up message indicates any connectivity issues, correct them and try again.
  6. If the message indicates that the connection is successfully verified, click Add Agent.
  7. A new agent will appear in the list.
  8. To edit the existing connection, selected it on the grid and click Edit Selected Load Agent Connection on the toolbar. Alternatively, you can right-click and select Edit, or double-click on the agent’s name.
  9. To delete the existing connection, selected it in the grid and click Delete Selected Load Agent Connection on the toolbar. Alternatively, you can right-click and select Delete.


    Note: To communicate with the controller, the Agent has a listener on TCP port 49998 ( or another port if you changed the default port while  Configuring on-premise Agents) If the Controller displays a communication error, make sure that StresStimulus is running on the remote computer in agent mode, and that TCP port 49998 is opened on firewalls between the controller and agents.
