Pylot - Help/Discussion Forum Launched

Thanks to OpenQA, I launched a web forum for help and discussions about Pylot:
Pylot Forums

This forum is a place for Pylot users and developers to share: questions, comments, experiences, enhancement requests, bug reports, etc. If you need any help, this is the place to post


What is Pylot?

"Pylot is a free open source tool for testing performance and scalability of web services. It runs HTTP load tests, which are useful for capacity planning, benchmarking, analysis, and system tuning.

Pylot generates concurrent load (HTTP Requests), verifies server responses, and produces reports with metrics. Tests suites are executed and monitored from a GUI or shell/console."

The official Pylot website is located at: www.pylot.org

Surprised to not see a lot of posts here - is there another Pylot forum elsewhere?

My question is that I have an XML file with 150 URLs. I kick off a test with these characteristics:

Agents = 2
Interval = 100ms
Rampup = 10s
Duration = 400s

Problem 1:
Result is both agents result in negative response times.

Problem 2:
Adding 5, 10+ Agents results in "All agents running" message in the cmd window, but not all agents reporting data in the application window.

Help appreciated. Thanks!
