Public Cloud injectors are provisioned in a cloud environment to run Eggplant Performance injector software. These injectors are typically started only as the test begins, which means that the IP address is likely to be different each time a test is run.
Public Cloud injectors are housed in Eggplant Performance Studio within Public Cloud injector families. The injector family provides the configuration settings for multiple similar injectors. Public Cloud injector families are found in the Workspace tree in Studio under Injector Families.
When you create a new injector family in the Create an Injector Family wizard, you choose the type of injector family, either:
- Public Cloud
After the injector family is created, you can't change the type, although you can always create new injector families and delete existing ones.
Before you try to create a Public Cloud injector family:
Credentials: Save your access credentials for the hosted provider you intend to use:
- For Amazon EC2, you need stored credentials for an EC2 account
- For Microsoft Azure, you need stored credentials for an Azure account.
For more information about stored credentials, see Stored Credentials.
Virtual Machine Images: You must have an image name or ID for at least one virtual instance on the hosted provider you intend to use:
- For EC2, an AMI ID
- For Microsoft Azure, an Azure image name.
For more information about Virtual Machine Images, see Virtual Machine Images.
If either of these pieces of information is missing, the Create an Injector Family wizard won't allow you to create a cloud injector family.
