Unable to connect to Visual Studio Online due to network failure RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I would like to use the Application Insights Status Monitor to monitor a web application during load test. I have installed the software on the web server and connected from my Azure account and I can at least monitor CPU and memory. Now I would like to utilize the monitoring in a load test (I am using VS 2015 Enterprise). I have successfully set up the connection to my Visual Studio Online account from team explorer and everything looks ok but when I press "Get Performance Data from Application Insights" according to http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2014/04/07/get-application-performance-data-during-load-runs-with-visual-studio-online.aspx I get this error message:


    I have tested to turn off firewall but no success. Any suggestions?

  • Hi,
    I suggest you to check with proxy in the network. Also perform the network trace by using  the tools like fiddler web debugger .

    If this is not the issue let me know, and we can explore other avenues

  • Hi Asha

    I don´t have any proxy in my network. In fiddler I capture following request:

    A SSLv3-compatible ClientHello handshake was found. Fiddler extracted the parameters below.

  • Hi,

    Request you to please re-check the configuration as the authentication token is getting expired. Please cross-verify the configuration with reference to following articles:
    & http://blogs.msdn.com/b/visualstudioalm/archive/2013/12/11/application-insights-microsoft-monitoring-agent-setup-faq.aspx

    However, if the issue persist, request you to send Network trace logs along with detailed description of the issue to "vsoloadtest@microsoft.com ", so that concerned product team can check on this issue & assist further.
