Issue:
Team We need to do real time analysis of responder health and response times under load especially during saturation test. Can you help in configuring Introscope or other monitoring tools with DevTest.
Environment:
DevTest 10.1.0
Resolution:
To eliminate the problem they are trying to investigate, changed Garbage Collector to Mark Sweep for VSE: 
-XX:+UseConcMarkSweepGC 
-XX:+CMSIncrementalMode 
-XX:+CMSIncrementalPacing 
-XX:MaxGCPauseMillis=500 

Customer would still like to monitor response times, found two possible solutions: 

1. DevTest reports. 
Virtual Service Metrics Reports

2. Perfmon 
You can use Perfmon to monitor your system and specific parts of DevTest. I am not sure if response time is possible but we can try together. To get started please look at these two documents:
