Browser Emulation


Load Impact has the ability to emulate different browsers. This can be changed directly per user scenario using http.set_user_agent_string() and http.set_max_connections() from our Load Script API. Alternatively, you can change the emulation for the entire test using the preconfigured options within Test Configuration:
