View and compare your load test runs

Last Update: 4/7/2017

Visual Studio 2017 | Visual Studio 2015 | Team Services

You can review past load test runs or current runs started by anyone on your team, at any time. You can also compare two test runs to see the gain or loss in performance, and other information.

  1. If you are running load tests in Visual Studio, open your load test project, open the Load test menu, and choose Load Test Manager.

    Open Load Test Manager

  2. The Load Test Manager page shows all of the load test runs started by you and all of your team members.

  3. If you are running URL-based or Apache JMeter load tests, you can see the list of all the test runs in Visual Studio Team Services Load tests list.

  4. Filter the list of load tests by state, date, or user who created the test run.

  5. Select a test run and open the shortcut menu (in Team Services you can use the down arrow icon) to see details of the test run, or stop a running test.

    You can also open a test run by double-clicking it with your mouse.

  6. To compare two test runs, select them in the list by holding CTRL while clicking with the mouse. Then choose the Compare two runs icon on the toolbar, or open the shortcut menu for one of the test runs and choose Compare.

  7. In the comparison page you see the names of the two tests and, at the top of the page, a Summary section that lists the prime performance factors for each test, then the difference from the baseline as a percentage (the color of this text indicates a gain or loss in performance).

    Use the links in the first row, the names and IDs of the test runs, to open the detailed view of that test run.

  8. The Charts section of the page shows a graphical comparison of performance for the two test runs. The default is a chart for the response time and user load. Choose a different pair of factors from the dropdown menu to see more performance comparisons.

  9. The Test settings section lists the primary settings specified for the two test runs. Again, the names and IDs of the tests are hyperlinks that open the details of that test.
