Test Agents seen in the Test manager but not in the load test run RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    We are running a load test for 1000 concurrent users and having trouble simulating more than 400 users. So installed 2 agents. These agents are available in the Test manager for manipulation. We are able assigned the percentage of the load to the agents. But during the load run we are not able to see the agents in the load test controller and agent graph.

    Are we missing any steps in between.

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    I would like to know where you want to run or have run load test. From Visual Studio IDE or in a lab environment in MTM.

    I assume that you have run load test in a lab environment in MTM. If you mean that you can see test agents in the controller and agent graph in the .trx file generated after test case run, whether you can see some results in other graphs such as Key Indicators and Test Response Time? As far as I know, Controller and Agents graph show Information about the computers on which the load tests run. This includes data about memory use, the processor, the physical disk, processes. By default Only the Available Mbytes and Processor Time counters are collected. I think that you should see the data lines/points instead of test agents name from the graph.

    If possible, you can provide us a screenshot about the controller and agent graph so that we can further look at this issue.

    In addition, I suggest that you try to check Controller and Agents in Counter under those graph to see if you can see some information about controller and agent.

    If still no help, I suggest that you try to run load test locally from VS IDE to check if you can get information from Controller and Agent graph.

    Best regards,
