I'm flying in for an interview with Microsoft's Gaming Division. I will be working on Load Testing for companies creating XBox games, to make sure server communication handling is comfortable prior to release. I have reasonable past experience on it, but I'm hoping to expand my perceptions on it.
For load/perf/stress testing, what do you look for/take care of? What advice could you give. Naturally, I will be using MS technologies, but generalized technology discussions on this are also welcome.
Example questions: What types of questions might you ask in relation to determining the best user profiles? What metrics are important? Do you have a generic process you follow? Any tips in general? Also, feel free to give vague starter responses. I'm pretty comfortable with load/perf testing, but I don't want to presume I have all my basis covered. (Hence this post)
