Controllers, Agents, and Rigs
Updated: June 2010
You can set up a group of computers that generates simulated load for testing. The group consists of a single controller and one or more agents. Collectively, this group is called a rig. An agent is the part of the rig that is used to run tests and generate simulated load. The controller is the part of the rig that is used to coordinate the agents and collect the test results. For information about how to set up your controller and agents, see Setting Up the Controller and Agent Functionality.
The controller and agent functionality is only available in the Visual Studio Team System 2008 Test Load Agent product, not in Visual Studio Team System. You can purchase Visual Studio Team System Test Load Agent where you purchased Visual Studio Team System.
