Visual Studio Performance Testing Quick Reference Guide (Updated Today)


This document is a collection of items from public blog sites, Microsoft internal discussion aliases (sanitized) and experiences from various Test Consultants in the Microsoft Services Labs. The idea is to provide quick reference points around various aspects of Visual Studio performance testing features that may not be covered in core documentation, or may not be easily understood.

The different types of information cover:

  • How does this feature work under the covers?
  • How can I implement a workaround for this missing feature?
  • This is a known bug and here is a fix or workaround.
  • How do I troubleshoot issues I am having?

You can download it from codeplex in PDF format here.

This version of the quick reference guide is a PDF file with a total of 160 articles that are all meant to provide quick information about various aspects of performance testing with Visual Studio.

Here is a list of categories that these articles pertain to:

  • How It Works
  • Items new to VSTT 2010
  • Configurations and Settings
  • Networks, IP Spoofing, Test Startups
  • Performance Counters and Data
  • Performance Counter Considerations on Rigs with slow links
  • Data and Results
  • Errors and Known Issues
  • Troubleshooting
  • Extensibility
  • Items not specific to the VSTS testing platform
