Run the load generator
In another browser tab, navigate to the load-generator URL, from which you can simulate users interacting with the application to generate traffic. For this application, values like 100 total users with a spawn rate of 2 users per second are reasonable. Fill in the Host field with the “Hipster shop web address” from the installation stage if it isn’t prepopulated. Click the Start swarming button to begin generating traffic to the site.
From here, you can explore how the application was deployed, and you can use the navigation menu to bring up other GCP tools.
