Configure monitor profiles

This topic describes how to create and configure monitor profiles, which can be used by any performance test in your project, to monitor server resources during a performance test run.

Monitor profiles overview

You monitor performance test execution using the Performance Center online monitors. To monitor server resources, you must configure the monitor settings for a performance test. You select the type of monitors to run, the servers whose resources you want to monitor, and add the measurements to monitor for each server. These monitor settings can then be saved as a monitor profile that can be used by any performance test in your project.
