Stress testing with WCAT

Recently I had a case in which I had to prove that load on IIS is too heavy for hosted web applications. While looking for appropriate tool I came across Microsoft Web Capacity Analysis Tool (WCAT) - not very popular tool but very powerful one.

As it wasn't easy to setup and run it I've decided to write an article which summarizes the information you need to run load test with WCAT.

Most of the information is in WCAT 6.3 documentation but I found that it isn't natural easy to run it.

Read Stress testing with Microsoft Web Capacity Analysis Tool (WCAT) article and I hope you'll find it helpful.

Any feedback is appreciated.
