Locust was first setup locally under Virtualbox VMs and functionally tested. Vagrant was used to generate the VMs and puppet was used for the software installation and configuration. Puppet is also used to propagate changes in the test specification file.
Vagrant was also used in the port to AWS and functional testing works well. But it is cumbersome to generate 100s of VMs with Vagrant as API throttling seems to kick in it. It is easier and far faster to clone of on the Locust worker machines and use the AWS API to
generate additional workers. That way 1000 machines be brought up in under 1 hour. The cost of such a test is fairly low: under 10 USD/hour.
