Hi,

I'm looking to capture the following data as part of my Performance Testing Result.
  1. Client Side:
  • Response Time,
  • Data Sent, 
  • Data Received,
  • Memory Usage,
  • CPU Usage.

 2.  Server Side:
  • Response Time
  • Data Sent, 
  • Data Received,
  • Memory Usage,
  • CPU Usage.

Kindly let me know the counters I need to select in-order to get the required result.

Thanks,
Kruba

Hi Krubaanandh,

The Performance Counters in Test Studio are pulled directly from Windows. You can find plenty of information on them online. See here and here to get started.

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for your reply!

The links provided by you were really helpful. I believe the performance counters capture information only from the Client Machine where the application is running.(Do correct me, if my I'm wrong)
Is there any way to capture information on the Server Side, for the same set of performance counters?

Regards,
Kruba

Hi Anthony,

One more question - Is it possible to export 'Performance Test Result' from Telerik to MSExcel?
If so, how to achieve the same?

Thanks,
Kruba

Hi Krubaanandh,

Ensure that some version of Test Studio is running on the Server and that the Test Studio Profiler Service is running. Then, when you Configure the Performance Run, you can use the Add a computer button to profile the server as well.

You currently cannot export the information from the History, Details, and Compare Views on the Performance tab. There is a feature request logged for this however.

An alternative is to run the test as part of a Performance Test List. Double click that test list run on the Results tab (green or red rectangle) and then click the Stopwatch icon in the upper right to view performance results. From here you can use the buttons in the Export ribbon in the toolbar. This info matches what you see in the Performance Overview.

Hi Anthony,

Thanks for your reply!

I ran the test as part of a Performance Test List and followed the steps as said by you.
When I export the profiler results(Performance Overview) into Excel it fails.
I've attched the required files for yoru reference.

Please advice.

Hi Krubaanandh,

I forgot to mention there was a bug in 2011.2.928 for the Performance Test List export into Word and Excel. 

Please upgrade to our latest official release or internal build, where this works correctly.

Kind regards,
Anthony

Hi Anthony,

It works great with the latest version.
Hope so, we get the export option for "Detailed View" soon.
Kindly let me know where I can vote for the same.

Thanks for your support.
Highly Appreciated!

Hi Krubaanandh,

That is a known issue that our Performance developers are aware of. You can vote for the PITS issue here: Public URL.

Hi, Anthony, I feel very helpful on your two reference links.
Do those counters your suggest on your blog also apply to Load Testing?
http://blogs.telerik.com/automated-testing-tools/posts/11-09-27/wrapping-performance-testing-introduction-what-to-monitor-plus-learning-resources

Will there any differences when we select counters for Load Testing, other than performance testing?

Thanks - Reno

Hi Reno,

There is no difference in these counters in the context of counters.

The difference is in the context of performance and load testing:

A load test does not have a UI, there is no browser. This means there are no links, no buttons, no drop downs, etc. to interact with. The only thing the load test does is echo back the previously recorded HTTP transactions that were generated and sent by the browser at the time the load test was recorded. 

You can set a lot of users at the same time in load testing.

In performance testing you take a functional scenario and measure each step's execution time. Measure not only the total time but also Client vs. Server time.

Hope this helps.

Hello,

Thank you for contacting us.

Test Studio uses Windows performance counters.

You can find CPU usage under "Processor" and network usage under "Network Adapter".

Hope this helps.
