How to: Specify the Number of Test Iterations in a Load Test Run Setting


After you create your load test with the New Load Test Wizard, you can use the Load Test Editor to change the scenarios properties to meet your testing needs and goals. For more information, see Creating load tests.

Using the Load Test Editor, you can edit the Test Iterations property of a run settings value in the Properties window. The Test Iterations property specifies the number of iterations to run on all the Web performance and unit tests in all the scenarios in a load test using the Load Test Editor.
