Optimize app performance with high-scale load testing

Azure Load Testing provides an economical entry point for Azure customers that want to optimise their app’s performance at high-scale load. Keep costs low and aligned to reality by only paying for the VUH you use, with fractional hour charges and lower pricing as you use more.

  • For each 'Load Testing Resource' that is active during any part of a month you will be charged the monthly fee, and have access to the included 50 VUH.
  • A Virtual User Hour = (# of virtual users simulated * the duration the simulation in minutes) / 60 minutes per hour. We count the # of active virtual users every 10 seconds and you are charged for the equivalent number of fractional Virtual User Hours you use.

    For example, if you simulate 1,000 virtual users for 30 minutes you will be charged for 500 virtual user hours.
