Web Performance Test Results Viewer Overview

The Web Performance Test Results Viewer is the primary tool for running Web performance tests. You can use the Web Performance Test Results Viewer to verify that a Web performance test is working correctly, and to debug it.

Requirements

  • Visual Studio Ultimate

By using the two panes in the Web Performance Test Results Viewer window, you can see the details of each request in your Web performance test and the resulting response to those requests. In the top pane, a tree view grid displays nested dependent requests under the top level request. Page redirects are also displayed in the tree view grid.

Note Note

To change a Web performance test, use the Web Performance Test Editor. For more information, see How to: Edit an Existing Web Performance Test Using the Web Performance Test Editor and Web Performance Test Editor Overview.
