    Fantastic Article Ambily…

    I am working for a media firm and we were discussing on which tool to use to do load testing for our web servers and the discussion went dragging each one giving different thoughts but never came up with a solution.

    I must say “Thank God” – how i got your article… I was reading your article and was very very happy that I got the right tool and the right guidance to do the testing…

    Immediately I sent this article to our Head of Tech… and thats is in one word he finished all others discussion “Decision Made”…

    Fantastic..fantastic (please add n(n) fantastics)…

    Thanks very much….

        Run the web test once and observe the Output HTML code received. Depends on the output HTML Code, we need to add an extraction rule. Please refer the articles to understand how to add an extraction rule.

    Hi Ambily,

    I am new to performance testing using VSTS. I am trying to add the server machines under counter sets. I could see them under counter sets, but not any results data/performance parameters data while running the test or after the test is completed.

    Do we need to install any agents on server machines to capture the performance parameters data?

    Appreciate if you can provide the details steps to follow to configure the server level performance parameters through VSTS.

    Advanced Thanks
    Shanthi
