D365 F&O Performance Testing

  • 1.  D365 F&O Performance Testing

    Posted 22 days ago

    Hello All,

    We will be going live on D365 for Finance and Operations (Azure-based, not on-premise) and are wondering what others have been doing for performance testing.  In addition to speaking with our implementation partner as well as Microsoft, what tools are being used by others?

    Thanks and regards,
    Gabor

    It might not help you but I'll share our experience.  We filled the Subscritpion estimator the best we could and then added a lot of buffer to the values.  Then we crossed our fingers... :)

    Hi Steeve,  how has the performance been?  If any issues, did Microsoft address the issue?

    Hi Gabor,

    We were on Ax2009 before doing to D365.  Of course the Web UI responsiveness is not as good as the Windows Native Ax2009 client.  That's the first complaint of the end user but they get used it.  Overall performance is ok but we are highly customized to that may have some impact.  None the less, when we encounter major performance issue with open a ticket and gets resolved quickly.  We open the ticket through our partner since they have a better MS Support Level, that way we skip the first layer of basic questions.  But it's been quite while since we opened a ticket for performance.

    We are equally interested in this topic.  We have been on D365 for 3 years and filled out the subscription estimator during the initial implementation.  Since then we have not really stressed the system.  Even at the extremely low volume, no one is dazzled by the speed.  We are now in the middle of a big integration effort with another system that will, at peek need to push as many as 1 million transactions overnight.  We have completed a new subscription estimator, but I'm not sure Microsoft did anything with the first one.  Our partner is telling us that Microsoft will monitor our transaction volume and resize accordingly.  I don't think we can go live hoping that will happen.

    Another issue is simply performing some benchmarking.  Our LCS Test environment is multi-box, but it is currently supporting our production environment.  We created a separate test environment in Azure to support the integration development, however this is a single box.  We can make it bigger, but we don't think that really proves much.

    Would anyone have a contact suggestion at Microsoft that can speak to this?  We could open a ticket but I don't think it would get us to the right person.

    Hi Gabor,

    You can use perf-sdk tool for performance testing.

    Thanks Vishal,  Our concern with the Performance SDK is that it will be discontinued after VS2019 and no clear direction has been given for roadmap.  We are starting to look at 3rd party tools now.
