    I would like to know how your team handles Silverlight UI performance/load testing. Does your company have any tool of handling Silverlight performance /load testing?

    I use visual studio .net  to do the load test as follows:

    1. Add WebAii tests and convert to MS tests ( tests cases are 5 , for example)

    2.  Add a load test and include those MS Tests

    3.   Run the load test.

    During the load test, the browser will open the Silverlight URL all the time. It seems to me it is not the right way for Silverlight load test.

    Could you tell me how your team handles Silverlight UI performance/load testing?

    Thanks,

    Ray

    Hi Ray,

    We do not usually recommend utilizing your functional tests as stress tests. Stress scenarios need to be carefully thought through right from the start recorded just for that purpose. Although cross-leverage is possible, most real world functional tests are not good stress tests. I realize you may already be aware of this, but since this is on a public forum, I felt it was important to mention.

    Regarding our own silverlight load testing techniques - I will put a feeler out to that team, however I cannot guarantee this information can be shared outside the company.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Ray,

    As a followup, I have some recommendations our silverlight  team was kind enough to share with us.

    For Memory leaks -
    WinDbg
    Ants Memory Profiler 6

    For Load/Performance Tests -
    Ants Performance Profiler
