After installation, StresStimulus operates as a Designer and Controller. To instantiate a Load Agent or a computer, enable Agent Mode after installing StresStimulus.
To enable Agent mode:
1. Bring up Agent Option dialog:
2. Check Enable Agent Mode.
3. A popup will appear asking if you are sure you wish to create an Agent. Click OK to confirm.
4. Select one of two available options:
5. Then give the agent host a name and specify a listening port. The default port is 49998. The port can't be changed for agents that run as a service and will always be the default 49998.
6. To monitor the performance of the Load Agent machine via the Internet, enable PerfMon Agent. For more click here. If Load Agent machine is connected via LAN/WAN/VPN, you can monitor its performance without enabling PerfMon Agent.
7. Click OK when finished. The StresStimulus status bar will display StresStimulus Load Agent.
Note: Unlike the controller that requires a serial number, Agents do not require activation. With the Enterprise / SP Edition license, you can install as many load agents as you need.
Once the agent is created, go to the controller and attached the agent.
