As promised, here are the slides and code samples from my Load Testing ASP.NET & WebAPI with Visual Studio 2013 talk that I did today at VSLive San Francisco 2015.
Here’s the abstract:
It’s a common problem: you’re getting close to when you’re supposed to deploy your new ASP.NET application in to production and somehow it just doesn’t seem very fast. Or maybe you’ve deployed your application in to production and now you’re getting complaints from customers that it’s just plain crazy-slow or that there are intermittent errors.
Yikes! You’ve got performance problems. Thankfully, Visual Studio has some great features to help out of this bind.
In this session, Ben will start out with a running web application with performance problems and show you how to find and fix these performance problems using Web Performance Tests, Load Tests, Unit Tests, Performance Explorer, custom performance counters, and code profiling. Along the way, Ben will discuss what you need to run your load tests in the cloud using Visual Studio Online or on-premise with a Load Test Rig.
