In this episode Nick Harris and Chris Risner are joined by Chuck Sterling, a Program Manager for Visual Studio.  In this video, Chuck demonstrates creating an on-premises load test and then take it to the cloud with Azure.  Chuck starts by creating a test in Visual Studio and then recording web traffic using the Web Recorder and Internet Explorer.  He also walks through using the Load Test Wizard to generate your load tests.  Chuck also shows you how you can see load test history, test results, and who started or triggered each test.  Chuck pulls all of these capabilities together to go from running a test, to identifying a slow down in his app, tracing the issue, and jumping right into debugging the section of code causing the issue.

      Great episode! Load testing is so important but poorly used out there. If you want something scalable and reliable you should do it.
