Modifying Performance Counters

Applies to TestComplete 15.40, last modified on March 25, 2022

TestComplete can track performance parameters of applications under test and display them on the Performance Counters page of the Test Log window in the form of graphs after the test execution is over. This topic explains how to modify performance counters monitored during the test execution.

For information on monitoring the application performance, see Monitoring Tested Application Performance - Basic Concepts. For description of available performance counters, see Counter Reference.

In order for TestComplete to be able to use the counters, the monitored computer should be preconfigured in special way. See Enabling Performance Monitoring for detailed information.

To modify parameters of an existing custom counter (the series color, tested computer and others), follow the steps below:

  • Select Tools | Current Project Properties from the TestComplete main menu.

  • Select the Performance Counters category on the left.

  • In the ensuing window, select the counter you want to modify and click Edit.

  • This will open the Edit Counter wizard (which is analogous to the Add Counter wizard), where you can change the parameters of the needed custom counter.

If you modify a counter’s parameters or delete a desired counter from the list, the changes will reflect the test results only after you run the test.
