LoadGen Agents will launch the actual session to the Target Environment (Citrix, Windows Virtual Desktop, Microsoft Remote Desktop, VMware Horizon, Windows 7, Windows 10, or Windows 11 FAT client). The LoadGen Agent can be installed anywhere you like (on-premises, public or private cloud) but of course, will need a connection to your own infrastructure. The LoadGen Agents only need a TCP 443 connection outbound. All the sensitive user information is stored in a Microsoft Azure Key Vault which is set up per tenant, LoadGen Agents are directly requesting sensitive information from the Key Vault and are not sent via the LoadGen Cloud.
You can also monitor the performance of a machine in your environment during End-to-End monitoring from a LoadGen Agent. This will give you diagnostic information and insight into how your environment is performing in correlation to application performance. At this moment we only support Windows Performance Counters.

The workload will play a set of user simulation actions, using real applications and data. You can select the workload to use in your monitoring sessions. You can either use the default LoadGen End-to-End Monitoring workload (read more about this workload in this article) or create your own workload with the LoadGen Studio.

The End-to-End Monitoring schedule will launch a monitoring session based on the defined schedule. When do we want to run the monitoring sessions and at which time interval? You can tailor your schedule to your needs:
- On which days.
- Start and end time, or all day.
- Start and end date, or indefinitely.
- The time interval.
