How to: Select a Load Test Results Repository
You are not limited to a local results store. Frequently, load tests are run on a remote set of Agent computers. Agents, together with a controller, can generate more simulated load than any single computer. For more information, see Distributing Load Test Runs Across Multiple Test Machines Using Test Controllers and Test Agents.
Test results from your agents or your local computer can be saved to any SQL server on which you have created a load test results store. In either case, you must identify where you want to store your load test results by using the Administer Test Controllers window.

Load test results store connection properties
In the Load test results store, click (…) to display the Connection Properties dialog box.
In Server Name, type the name of the server where you have run the LoadTest scripts.
If you are using SQL Express on your local machine for the load test store, enter <computername>\sqlexpress (for example, MyComputer\sqlexpress). For more information, see How to: Create a Load Test Results Repository Using SQL.
