Load test rig in a specific VNet for testing private apps

Last updated: 21-07-2016

Using this template, you can create your own load test rig on Azure IaaS virtual machines in order to test applications that do not have a public end-point. The load generating agent machines will be created in the specified VNet. This VNet should have line of sight to the application you want to test. The test rig will be configured for your Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS) account and can be used to run cloud-based load tests using Visual Studio.
