Running load tests often involves simulating requests from thousands of virtual users. Simulating these users requires a lot of resources from the computer running the test. In some situations, one computer cannot generate the load enough to properly test the server.
To avoid this, you can create distributed tests. These tests use multiple computers to simulate the load on the target server. At the same time, each individual computer can handle the load generation.

I read the distribution Article and agree, but what I am asking is if I distribute tests am I limited to only 1000VU's overall the tests Distributed and Local or does each agent get 1000VU's? We are trying to hit a load testing metric and want to know if it is possible switching to distributed tests do we gain any VU's to help.
