The advantages of Test Agents Lite are:
- You do not need to dedicate any hardware.
- Getting started is very easy, as are large-scale deployments.
On the other hand:
- Test Agents Lite have a limited feature set compared to other Test Agents: only TCP, UDP, and MPEG IPTV are available (full details here).
- Test Agents Lite also have limitations in performance and functionality compared to other Test Agents, since there is no control of the lower layers.
