Load testing WCF

Someone recently asked about how to load test WCF – apart from the usual things like LoadRunner, VSTS Test Load Agent, etc a couple of other interesting options came up. One is WCF Load Test and the other JMeter. WCF Load Test generates a unit test taking in data from a a trace file along with the relevant WCF proxy or interface.

I must admit, JMeter would not have been one of the things that would have come to mind to me in this context, but technically there is nothing stopping from you using it as you can stress and load test any http request.

This blog is my personal blog and while it does reflect my experiences in my professional life, this is just my thoughts. Most of the entries are technical though sometimes they can vary from the wacky to even political – however that is quite rare. Quite often, I have been asked what’s up with the “gibberish” and the funny title of the blog? Some people even going the extra step to say that, this is a virus that infected their system (ahem) well. [:D] It actually is quite simple, and if you have still not figured out then check out this link – whats in a name?
