To prepare the Simulator for testing a Hazelcast cluster deployed at Google Compute Engine (GCE), first you need an e-mail address to be used as a GCE service account. You can obtain this e-mail address in the Admin GUI console of GCE. In this console, select Credentials in the menu API & Auth. Then, click the Create New Client ID button and select Service Account. Usually, this e-mail address is in this form:
<your account ID>@developer.gserviceaccount.com.
Save the p12 keystore file that you obtained while creating your Service Account (you will refer to that path). In the
bin folder of the Hazelcast Simulator package that you downloaded, edit the
setupGce.sh script to specify the following parameters:
After you run the edited
setupGce.sh script, the
simulator.properties file that you need for a proper testing of your instances on GCE is created in the
conf folder of Hazelcast Simulator.
