During the test run, you can monitor the performance of multiple Windows-based web, application, and database servers as well as load agent machines. 

Performance Graph

Performance graphs display a set of performance counters from one or several machines. You can create as many performance graphs as you need. Each of them will plot performance metrics during test execution on the run-time dashboard and will be presented on the test report.


To create a graph with one machine:

  1. Select Windows Machines (a) on the workflow tree
  2. Click Add Performance Graph (b) to bring up the Add graph and machine to monitor dialog (c).
  3. Provide or change the default graph title (d).  The title will appear on the run-time dashboard panel and report.
  4. Complete the rest of the dialog to define a machine you would like to monitor and its counters, as described in the next two sections.
  5. Click OK to save the graph and the machine. The new graph node (f) with a machine and set of performance counters will appear on the graph tree.


To add a machine to an existing graph:

  1. Select a current graph and click Add a machine to monitor (g). The dialog (c) will appear.
  2. Complete the dialog to define a machine you would like to monitor, as described in the next section.
  3. Click OK to save the graph and the machine.


You can add several machines one after another.

To delete counter(s), machines, or graphs, select the object(s) used and click Delete selected object(s) (h), or delete it on the graph tree. To undo the delete operation, hit <Ctrl>+Z.

 Starting from v5.6 a test can have up to 16 graphs.

Monitor agent machine

If you wish to monitor an existing agent machine, then click the Select Agent... button to bring up the Agent Picker dialog. Then select the agent to monitor and click the OK button.

Sharing performance monitoring configuration between tests

The Performance monitoring configuration can be exported and imported between tests to save time on re-configuring it every time.

To export the current performance monitoring configuration:

  • Press the Export monitoring configuration button to bring up the save file dialog
  • Select the destination path and click OK to save the configuration file.

To import the previously saved performance monitoring configuration:

  • Press the Import monitoring configuration button (a) to bring up the open file dialog
  • Select the file path of the previously exported monitoring configuration
  • In the Import performance monitoring configuration dialog select the graphs to import (b)
  • Click the OK button (c) to import the selected graphs into the test
