Compute units allow specifying how many machine resources will be needed for a single participant. Some tests require more computing power to run smoothly, but some need less than usual, thats why picking the correct compute unit value is critical for a smooth test run and cost optimisation.
Each full compute unit corresponds to 0.5 CPU core and 1 GB of system memory. In to total Loadero currently offers 5 compute unit settings.
Default compute unit value for participants created using API is g2 (1 CPU core and 2 GB System memory), but participants created using front-end app by default will have g1.
Each project subscription plan has some sort of limitation on how many compute units can be used in a single test and how many in total in the billing period.
