ON THIS PAGE we will highlight how you can perform load testing with Apache JMeter using Visual Studio Team Services.

  • You have a Team Foundation team project available with Team Services. If you don't, we encourage you to go through our Getting Started walkthrough.
  • You have existing Apache JMeter web tests that you run on your website.

Apache JMeter

Load testing with Apache JMeter is now possible from the cloud with Team Services. By moving your load testing to the cloud, you are able to easily set up your existing tests to run, while having the ability to easily scale your load. Another unique feature that load testing from the cloud provides is the ability to test loads from varying geographical locations to mimic your user base. With the flexibility of the cloud, load testing has never been easier and more realistic.

Detailed Results

When you run your Apache JMeter tests from Team Services, you have the ability to view your application's performance and pinpoint areas of improvement within our results view. You will see a summary of your main metrics such as average response time, failed requests, etc. You will have the ability to view your slowest requests along with detailed information about any errors that might have occurred during the run. Simply adjust your load settings and compare results between runs to see how your application will behave under varying circumstances.
