I’ve setup an ubuntu server to run wpt and would like to use one of the ec2 ami’s for my test agent.
I’m not sure how I implement the parameters below. Where do they go? Can I pass them as a query string? How does the ubuntu server know the IP address of the ec2 ami? I looked through the documentation the only thing I was able to find is copied below. I guess I’m just not sure how to implement the remote ec2 test server…?..?
wpt_server - the web server where WebPagetest is running (required)
wpt_location - The location name to use (optional - if not specified it will be built from the region and browser - ec2-us-east-IE8 for example)
wpt_key - secret key for the specified location (optional)
wpt_threads - number of simultaneous browsers to run (optional, defaults to 1 - multiple threads does not work with traffic shaping)
wpt_timeout - timeout setting for each test in seconds (optional, defaults to 60)
wpt_reboot_interval - reboot every X minutes (optional, defaults to 720)
wpt_defrag_interval - defrag the hard drive every X days (optional, defaults to disabled - 0)
wpt_browser - Web Browser to use (optional, defaults to pagetest.exe - set to blank to use IE)
Example User Data string
wpt_server=www.webpagetest.org wpt_location=EC2_Dulles_IE8 wpt_key=mysecretkey [/quote]
Thank you very much for your help. I’m really looking forward to using this tool.
