The LoadGen Agent is a Windows Service that will launch the different test user sessions. For Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, Microsoft Remote Desktop Services, Microsoft Azure Virtual Desktop, and VMware Horizon the LoadGen Agent can launch multiple user sessions to the backend IT environment. When you use the LoadGen Agent in combination with a Fat Client (Windows 7, Windows 10, and Windows 11) it is capable to launch one simultaneous session each time.
The functionality of Systems under Test is totally renewed from the LoadGen Q3 2021 release. You can now use LoadGen Agents to retrieve Systems Under Tests from machines in the proximity of the LoadGen Agent physical location.
