How do you write Monitor Server data out to a TSD file and combine it with load test data ?

How do you write Monitor Server data out to a TSD file and combine it with load test data ?

The monitoring data is not written by default as a time series data file (.tsd) in the same way as the workload data is written. Therefore you have to take a slightly different approach when creating monitoring data to combine it with normal time-series data.

  1. Start Performance Explorer

  2. Close any graphs display

  3. Select File | New | Monitor Report

  4. Select The Data Source from the displayed wizard

  5. Specify the Host machine and any required connection parameters

  6. Select the measures to be included in the report and click finish

  7. Select File | New | Monitor Graph

  8. Tile the windows vertically so the graph and report are side by side.

  9. Drag and drop the measures from the report on to the graph

  10. On the toolbar there is a button "Write Monitor Data" (the red pencil) which starts writing the monitoring data to a time series data file - it prompts you to save the data file. To change the tsd time interval right click anywhere in the monitor report and select properties.

  11. Start the load test - when finished display the Performance monitor again and stop the monitor data from being written to data file, by clicking on the red pencil icon again.

  12. When asked if you want to add to the work space click on No. (unless you want to create a monitor template - review the Performance Explorer help for detailed instructions).

  13. Clear all graphs / reports from workspace

  14. Select File | New | Graph

  15. Right Click project name in tree view and choose Add Results

  16. From The Select Results Dialog select the results from the load test you require. This will be added to the resources available in the tree view.

  17. Right Click project name in tree view and choose Add Results and use the results dialog again to add the server monitoring time series data using the file name that you made a note of in step 10.

  18. Expand the folders for the load test and the monitoring data

  19. Drag and drop the measures you want to compare on to the graph.
