Local IP Addresses to use

If the machine on which you run Webserver Stress Tool has more than one IP address, you may select which IP address should be used to simulate the requests. We have found that for most situations for HTTP load/stress tests you usually do not need to have more than one IP address, as the server answers all requests in the same manner regardless of the IP addresses. Only if your website or application uses the IP address to follow the sessions of a user etc. is it necessary to use more than one IP address.

If more than one IP address is selected, the IP addresses are used in a “round robin” manner for each simulated user. As the first user uses the first selected IP address for all his requests, the second user uses the second IP address, etc.
