Service Virtualization monitor

This section explains how to use the Service Virtualization monitor.

About Service Virtualization monitoring

The Service Virtualization monitor graph shows the Service Virtualization resources measured during the test run. Service Virtualization uses simulated services during your test run instead of loading actual services. The Service Virtualization monitor also supports measuring simulated services running on Linux.

For detailed information on the performance counters that Service Virtualization can monitor, refer to the Service Virtualization Help Center.

Tip: You can also monitor virtual service behavior using the Runtime monitor graphs. For details, see Operations graph and Services graph.
