Performance Counters Reference

 

Topic Last Modified: 2007-10-12

You can monitor the progress of the simulation when the test is being run by observing performance counters. To reach the Performance screen, click Start, click Run, type perfmon, and then click OK.

The following two tables list the counters and purposes for the Exchange Load Generator Engine Counter object and the Exchange Load Generator User Groups Counter object.

noteNote:
Do not use the Exchange Load Generator latency counters as a measure of acceptable performance with regard to latency. Instead, use the RPC averaged latency counter on the server.

 

Counter Purpose

ContentCacheTrims

Number of times that the task engine was required to allocate additional space for cached data, where there were no more than 8 regions of 64 MBs available and in-memory contents were removed from the cache. Indicates that task engine does not have sufficient virtual memory to perform an accurate simulation.

ContentCacheTrims/sec.

Rate of content cache trims. As the rate increases, overall accuracy of the simulation decreases.

Task Exceptions

Count of task executions that resulted in a fatal exception

Task Exceptions/sec.

Number of fatal exceptions encountered when running a task per second

Task Interval

Number of milliseconds that the engine will wait between dispatching tasks

Task Queue Length

Number of items currently in task queue that have not yet been executed

Tasks Skipped

Number of tasks that were skipped

Tasks Completed

Total number of tasks completed

Tasks Completed/sec.

Number of tasks completed per second

Tasks Dispatched

Total number of tasks dispatched

Tasks Dispatched/sec.

Number of tasks dispatched per second

The counters are listed alphabetically, and within task or action type.
