Generic Test Log - Performance Counters Panel

Applies to TestComplete 15.10, last modified on December 01, 2021

The Performance Counters panel of the test log displays graphs of the performance counters monitored during the test run. The counter values are captured each time a new entry is posted to the test log, rather than at fixed time intervals.

If there were no performance counters monitored during the test run, this panel will not be displayed.
