13.4. DISTRIBUTED LOAD TESTS

In larger-scale efforts, a single machine may not have enough power to simulate the number of users you need to generate the required stress on your application. Fortunately, Visual Studio 2010 load testing includes features supporting the execution of load tests in a distributed environment.

There are a number of roles that the machines play. Client machines are typically developer machines on which the load tests are created and selected for execution. The controller is the "headquarters" of the operation, coordinating the actions of one or more agent machines. The controller also collects the test results from each associated agent machine. The agent machines actually execute the load tests and provide details to the controller. The controller and agents are collectively referred to as a test rig.
