Performance Test Designer window

This window enables you to define a performance test. Defining a performance test includes selecting scripts for the test, scheduling how many Vusers to run in each script and for how long to run them, choosing topologies and monitor profiles for the test, and enabling collection of diagnostics data for the test run.

Version Control: If your project is version-enabled:

  • To edit a test, you must check it out.

  • When you check out a test, only you can edit the test.

  • If the test is checked out by another user, you cannot check the test out as well. You can view the last checked in version in read-only mode.

  • Make sure you have checked in a test at least once before you attempt to run it (even when using the option to run a test that is not checked in).

To access
  1. From the Performance Center navigation toolbar, click and select Test Management.

  2. Select a performance test in the test management tree and click Edit Test.
