Introducing Performance Center

Performance Center is a cross-enterprise tool for planning and running multiple performance test projects. It enables you to remotely monitor concurrent tests across different geographic locations.

How does Performance Center work?

Performance Center generates load on your Web servers or applications by running scripts that use virtual users (Vusers) to emulate typical user activity. While Vusers run, Performance Center collects server response time data, which it analyzes to provide a clear picture of performance, and create a performance testing center of excellence.
