Hello, I am new to this group and new to performance testing. If anyone has any experience with small VB applications using MSDE and SQL Server database, I'd appreciate suggestions about causes of poor performance. I'm thinking architecture...I also don't know how to set up simulations of high loads or massive numbers of users...must these be tested using some sort of tool? What sort of prices do the popular tools have? A lot of tools reference web testing - are they useful for non-web testing too?
thanks for your comments
