Represents the load test being run.
Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTestFramework (in Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTestFramework.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Abort()||Stops the load test on all agents.|
|Abort(Exception)||Stops the load test on all agents and specifies the exception that caused the abort.|
|Equals||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Heartbeat||Occurs once every second.|
|LoadTestAborted||Occurs when the load test is aborted.|
|LoadTestFinished||Occurs when the load test has stopped running on the agent.|
|LoadTestStarting||Occurs just before the load test begins to run on the agent.|
|LoadTestWarmupComplete||Occurs when the warm-up period has completed.|
|TestFinished||Occurs when an iteration of one of the tests contained within the load test finishes.|
|TestSelected||Occurs every time an iteration of one of the tests contained within the is selected.|
|TestStarting||Occurs when an iteration of one of the tests contained within the load test is started.|
|ThresholdExceeded||Occurs when a threshold rule is exceeded.|
Load testing is useful for predicting the impact on the performance of an application during high user workloads. This simulates realistic user volumes to define real world conditions that can be used for changing requirements and application design to meet expected quality standards for the software product. Load tests can include both Web and unit tests.
Load test settings can be accessed through the UI or with a load test plug-in. For more information, see How to: Create a Load Test Plug-In.
It is a good practice to run a smoke test before running any intensive load test. For more information, see Guidelines for Smoke Testing. This helps validate configurations and expected behavior of the test.
