Batch orders

Last Mile, Private Last Mile, or Mobile tests can be set up as a batch order to make it easier to manage and configure your tests.

For Last Mile and Private Last Mile tests, a batch order can contain up to six URLs or three transactions.

Tests configured in a batch order will be executed sequentially from the same set of peers (for Last Mile and Private Last Mile tests) or nodes (for Mobile tests) to provide comparative measurements. Batch orders always execute tests in Monitor ID order, from lowest ID number (the oldest tests) to highest.
