This Microsoft Whitepaper describes the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 Team Test Edition Load Agent product and licensing requirements and high-level technical information. It also describes product requirements for different development and testing situations and gives a nice picture of how the Load Agent performance testing tools fits into the picture.
TechSouth is a Microsoft Partner. We have multiple consultants with Team Test Load Agent implementation and load testing experience on large scale client engagements, on both Microsoft and non-Microsoft product architectures. Team Test is an inexpensive alternative for clients who don't have the budget for mature tools - Mercury - but still need a good idea of how their product works/performs and must do so on a very tight budget.
