Load test with a dedicated VPC

You can request that LoadRunner Cloud provision cloud-based load generators for your load tests in an AWS virtual private cloud dedicated just for you. You can then connect to the dedicated VPC using AWS Direct Connect or AWS VPC Peering, enabling you to consider these load generators as part of your own network.

Note: Allocating a dedicated VPC may require an additional cost.

For details, contact your account manager or sales representative.

Connect using AWS Direct Connect

Use AWS Direct Connect to connect to a dedicated VPC when your Application Under Test (AUT) is located on-premises and not publicly available. The following diagram shows the basic architecture for using AWS Direct Connect to connect to a dedicated VPC.

Request use of a dedicated VPC for your tenant

Open a support ticket requesting that we configure your LoadRunner Cloud tenant to enable running load tests using a dedicated VPC.

Note: A dedicated VPC is applicable for a specific AWS region. You must request a dedicated VPC for each region you want to use in a load test.
