The installation kit of V5.0-K (first released in October 2012) has again been updated and contains the following new additional feature:
- When launching (starting) Amazon EC2 load generators from the GUI, you can now activate a new option which effects that the EC2 load generators will be automatically terminated if the CPU Usage of a load generator is constantly less than a threshold for a configurable period of time.
This new function supports you to avoid unnecessary costs for unused EC2 instances. It’s implemented using an Amazon “CloudWatch Alarm” that even works when the ProxySniffer GUI is no longer running.
Hint: Please keep in mind that your test results are lost if you don’t have acquired them before the load generators are (automatically) terminated.
