Do we have any tools for Load/Stress/Performance testing of ArcGIS Desktop Products. Does ESRI recommend any third party tools?
Can you give some more information about what you are trying to test? Are you talking about bandwidth utilization over LAN? It would help to know what kind of performance metrics you want to get.
Two that come to mind from the Esri Enterprise Implementation team are:
Besides that, there's Geocortex Analytics which I haven't used but looks cool and might help.
Are these tools actual ESRI tools or a third party?
Mxdperfstat and System Test for the Web are Esri tools created by the Esri Professional Services team. Geocortex Analytics is developed by Latitude Geographics, an Esri Platinum partner. In addition to the tool Martin mentions you might also want to look at ArcGIS Monitor. Here's a blog post about it from last year:
Thanks I will show these to our project manager
Have a look at PerfQAnalyzer, this can do a lot more than MxdPerfStat. Details at PerfQAnalyzer: New 10.5/10.5.x Version (Build172) Available for Download | ArcGIS Blog
Hi! We have a portal implementation for a project which, when active, we expect between 175 and 300 named users to access continually for up to 12 hours/day. is there some sort of tool with which we can simulate this level of usage to determine infrastructure sizing necessary to support?
