Hardware / Software requirement
accelQ local agent can run a windows desktop, a linux machine or a MacBook. Note that the agent only serves as a machine from where the browser will invoke to run the test. It is not necessary to bring a server class configuration.
Here are some configuration parameters
- Quad-core processor
- 8 GB RAM
- 250 GB hard-drive
- JDK 8. Make sure to have Java Development Kit, not just the runtime/JRE. Higher versions of JDK are currently not supported.
- Windows, Linux or Mac Operating System. For Linux machines, make sure it has GUI or desktop environment enabled.
Important Note: Make sure to run the agent on command prompt. Do not setup the agent as a background service.
Important Note: If you are selecting Linux operating system for local agent, make sure it has proper desktop environment enabled.
Sizing Local Agent
Make sure to setup local agent with necessary hardware and memory configuration to support execution requirements. Typically, an 8 GB RAM supports execution of up to 2 jobs concurrently.
Depending on the need for additional concurrency, appropriately scale up the RAM size, with about 1.5 GB RM for every additional concurrent job. For example, with 16 GB RAM, you could scale up to 6 concurrent jobs.
