When you run a load test, information gathered during the run is stored in the Load Test Results Repository. The Load Test Results Repository contains performance counter data and information about any errors. For more information, see Managing Load Test Results in the Load Test Results Repository.

You can manage load test results from the Load Test Editor by using the Open and Manage Load Test Results dialog box. You can open, import, export, and remove load test results.

To export results from a repository

  1. From a test project, open a load test.

  2. On the embedded toolbar, click Open and Manage Results.

    The Open and Manage Load Test Results dialog box is displayed.

  3. In Enter a controller name to find load test results, select a controller. Select <Local - No controller> to access results stored locally.

  4. In Show results for the following load test, select the load test whose results you want to view. Select <Show results for all tests> to see all results for all tests.

    If load test results are available, they appear in the Load test results list. The columns are Time, Duration, User, Outcome, Test, and Description. Test contains the name of the test, and Description contains the optional description that is added before the test is run. The Description column displays the short descriptions that were entered in the Analysis Comments for this test result.

  5. In the Load test results list, click a result. You can use the Shift key, the Ctrl key, or both to select more than one result, and export them to a single file.

  6. Click Export.

    The Export Load Test Results dialog box appears.

  7. In the File name box, type a name, and then click Save.

    The results are exported to an archive file.


    The Open and Manage Load Test Results dialog box remains open after the results appear.
