Assembly: Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTestFramework (in microsoft.visualstudio.qualitytools.loadtestframework.dll)
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.
It is a good practice to run a smoke test before running any intensive load test. For more information, see. This helps validate configurations and expected behavior of the test.
