Why should servers be managed?

Depending on the test requirements, third-party servers should be set to “Ignored” or “Archived”. Requests that would go to ignored or archived servers will be skipped instead. Skipped requests prevent unnecessary traffic to advertisements, analytics, or other third-party services. You may encounter a server already set to ignored as a part of our blacklist. Please contact support@loadstorm.com about enabling a blacklisted server for your testing needs.

Ignore a Server

Please note that by ignoring a server, any requests normally sent to that server will not be sent.

  1. Click on the Build menu, then on the Server tab on the top.
  2. Double-click the server you want to ignore.
  3. Click the Ignore button. No requests will be sent to this server.

Archive a Server

Archiving a server works the same as ignoring a server, but it’s a separate category. This way you can separate the servers you may never need to test from servers that you may not want to test at the moment. To reiterate, archiving a server means it is ignored. Any requests normally sent to that server will not be sent.

  1. Click on the Build menu, then on the Server tab on the top.
  2. Click the server you want to archive to select it.
  3. Click the Archive button. No requests will be sent to this server.
