Generating heavy loads using Visual Studio Team System for Testers 2005

To generate heavy loads on Multi-proc machines using VSTT 2005 , you need to enable Server GC on QTAgent.exe.config, if you are using Controller/Agents OR VSTestHost.exe.config,  if you are using the Visual Studio IDE. The configuration looks like this:

<?xml version =”1.0″?>
<configuration>
    <runtime>
        <gcServer enabled=”true” />
        <assemblyBinding xmlns=”urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1″>
            <probing privatePath=”PrivateAssemblies;PublicAssemblies”/>
        </assemblyBinding>
    </runtime>
</configuration>
