Launch instance of
ami-0316d86a with size m1.large. When SSHing into
the instance, make sure to use Agent Forwarding so we can SSH from the

Login to the instance as the 'ec2-user' user then run the setup_client.sh script.
curl -o setup_client.sh https://raw.github.com/torquebox/speedmetal/master/scripts/setup_client.sh chmod +x setup_client.sh ./setup_client.sh server_instance_private_ip_address
Launch instance of 'ami-0316d86a' with size c1.xlarge in the same availability zone and security group as the Tsung instance.
Login to the instance as the 'ec2-user' user then run the setup_server.sh script.
curl -o setup_server.sh https://raw.github.com/torquebox/speedmetal/master/scripts/setup_server.sh chmod +x setup_server.sh ./setup_server.sh server_type rds_instance_ip_address
