Session 2: Create and Run Load Tests in Visual Studio 2012

Presented by: Brian Minisi

Running Time: 53 min

Your application has been tested and released to production. However, it soon becomes clear that it does not perform as expected; slow or unresponsive and generating errors. The application works fine in QA and UAT, but is unable to handle the traffic thrown at it in the real world. Knowing this prior to production is essential. Visual Studio 2012 Load Testing provides the tools and features to simulate the conditions an application will face in production.

In this session we’ll discuss the load testing architecture, how to set up and configure a test rig, create Web performance tests and load tests, and set up roles with diagnostic and data adapters. We’ll also discuss using performance monitors and counter sets. Finally, we’ run a load test and examine the load test report.
