How to install Real Load

Usually you just need to install Measuring Agents. You do not need a special license for this.

On the other hand, the installation and operation of an own dedicated Portal Server requires a special, commercial license.



Measuring Agent: At least 4GB of free memory are required for a basic install.


The CPU requirements will vary heavilly depending on the type of load test scripts developped and the volume to be simulated.

Supported operating systems

  • Windows 10 / Windows Server 2012 or newer.
  • Centos 8
  • Red Hat Linux 6
