Performance Center User Guide

Performance Center is a cross-enterprise tool for planning and running multiple performance test projects. It enables you to remotely monitor concurrent tests across different geographic locations.

How do I get started?

This flow demonstrates how to configure project settings and add test assets, create and run performance tests, and then analyze the test results.

How does Performance Center work?

Performance Center generates load on your Web server or application by running scripts that use virtual users (Vusers) to emulate typical user activity. While Vusers run, Performance Center collects server response time data, which it analyzes to provide a clear picture of your application's performance under load.
