The Never Ending Load Test

Ways to mess up your Team System Tests...

In Visual Studio Team System you can create a Manual Test, which is a great tool I know many people will ignore but that is for another Blog entry.  You can also create a Load Test and the developers were smart enough to filter out Manual Tests. This was clever because a manual test, while processing stops to ask you to perform the test and record the result. This would stop the load test and completly mess up any data you are trying to gather.

However you can still add a Manual Test to your Load Test by putting it in an Ordered Test first. So if your Load test seems to have stopped check to see if someone added a manual test to one of your ordered tests.
