Hi,

I have a C# socket server (console app) that performs a whole lot of data manipulation when it receives messages from clients. I also have an application to simulate client connections.

What is the best way (ie: visual studio plugin) to measure the performance of the server application and see how many messages/connections it can safely handle?

Thanks

That's a big question!  Performance is based on not only the completion of a tasked but other members that might normalize the data.  Stuff like how busy is the server currently, am I tasking it to do something other than what is coming in on the socket in question. You'll have to balance those factors for your self.   I might start with identifying types of transaction coming into the server. Now you will have away of comparing apples to apples or some form of normalizing the data.  Use a dictionary keyed on the request type and the time it takes to complete the task.  You will also need to have an idea what the system is doing.  Comparing your socket server to how busy the system that supports it.  There are a bunch of monitors available from the operating system that allow you to see what it is doing. There are some good articles out on Code project to show you how.  Good luck hope that helps.
