Export test results from Azure Load Testing for use in third-party tools

In this article, you learn how to download the test results from Azure Load Testing in the Azure portal. You might use these results for reporting in third-party tools or for diagnosing test failures. Azure Load Testing generates the test results in comma-separated values (CSV) file format, and provides details of each application request for the load test.

You can also use the test results to diagnose errors during a load test. The responseCode and responseMessage fields give you more information about failed requests. For more information about investigating errors, see Troubleshoot test execution errors.

You can generate the Apache JMeter dashboard from the CSV log file following the steps mentioned here.


  • An Azure account with an active subscription. If you don't have an Azure subscription, create a free account before you begin.
  • An Azure Load Testing resource that has a completed test run. If you need to create an Azure Load Testing resource, see Create and run a load test.

Test results file

Azure Load Testing generates a test results CSV file for each test engine instance. Learn how you can scale out your load test.

Azure Load Testing uses the Apache JMeter CSV log format. For more information about the different fields, see the JMeter Glossary in the Apache JMeter documentation.

You can find the details of each application request for the load test run in the test results file. The following snippet shows a sample test result:

Access and download load test results

To download the test results for a test run in the Azure portal:

  1. In the Azure portal, go to your Azure Load Testing resource.

  2. On the left pane, select Tests to view a list of tests, and then select your test.

    To limit the number of tests to display in the list, you can use the search box and the Time range filter.

  3. You can download the test results file as a zipped folder in either of two ways:

    • Select the ellipsis (...) next to the load test run you're working with, and then select Download results file.

      A load test run needs to have a Done, Stopped, or Failed status for the results file to be available for download.

    • On the Test run details pane, select Download, and then select Results.

  4. You can use any zip tool to extract the folder and access the test results.

    The folder contains a separate CSV file for every test engine and contains details of requests that the test engine executed during the load test.
