Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Running performance and load tests, part of Visual Studio 2010 Essential Training.
I've found that many developers are not aware that you can set up and run…complex web load tests for an ASP.NET Application.…You can do this right from within Visual Studio, as long as you have the Ultimate edition.…If you don't have the Ultimate version, you won't be able to follow along…with this demonstration.…I'm going to create two types of tests:…a performance test which is intended to determine how fast some aspect of a…system performs under workload,…then I'll create a load test which is a simulated real-world test that exercises…the web site by running the designated performance tests.…
I'm going to use his project called WebsiteToLoadTest to write my tests against.…This is just a simple ASP.NET site.…Now before you run the test, make sure you are running Visual Studio as an…administrator; otherwise you will not be able to perform the load tests.…Next, I'm going to run my application.…Since I'm running on a development server, I need the copy the port number from…my local host before I create my web tests.…

Q: Which edition of Visual Studio 2010 do I need to follow along in this course?
A: The course is taught with Visual Studio 2010 Professional, but can also be used with the Premium or Ultimate editions. The Express editions of Visual Studio, including Visual Basic 2010 Express, Visual C# 2010 Express, and Visual C++ Express, are not covered in this course.
Q: I'm attempting to download the exercise files for this course, and my virus protection is blocking me from unzipping the downloaded file. Are the files corrupted?
A: The alert is a false-positive message. Your antivirus software is detecting the active code included in the exercise files, which in some ways resembles viral code. There is nothing to be alarmed about and you can ignore the warning. This is common among coding courses and environments.
