Lync Performance Measurement

    Question

  • How to measure Lync Performance ?

    Should the Stress Test Tool (download link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=94B5F191-6D80-4DEC-94C2-FCA57995F8B7&displaylang=e&displaylang=en) run in the Lync front-end server ?

    OR

    I should have another Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 or Windows Server 2008 in the same domain as the Lync server (Current environment is 1 x Lync Front End server, 1 x DB server - Archive, monitor and database, 1 x Group Chat server. They are Lync Standard edition) and install the Stree Test Tool ?

  • Thanks for the information. Could it run in another nother Windows Server 2003 R2 x64 or Windows Server 2008 in the same domain as the Lync server ? it may not allow to run it in the production Front-end server because it is in production.

  • Hi,

    Yes, you can do that. We need to meet the prerequisites for Stress and Performance Tool on client computer:
