  • Pester Test Network Latency.Tests.ps1

All require dbatools and PowerShell version 4 or above. You can get dbatools from https:\

The pester tests are controlled by the TestConfig.Json file.

Alter the values or settigns to fit what you need to test. Setting the Skip value to true will skip the entire test

Then change directory to the folder holding the files and run

$Config = (Get-Content TestConfig.JSON) -join "`n" | ConvertFrom-Json

Then all you need to do is run


These scripts use gather Server names from a Hyper-V host so if you wish to use that then set the HyperV to your Hyper-V Hostname and NameSearch to perform a wildcard search on your VM Names

            "HyperV": "beardnuc",

If you wish to use a different method to gather your SQL instances then you will need to open the folder in VS Code and use the search and replace to replace the below code

# $SQLServers = (Get-VM -ComputerName $Config.Network.HyperV -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue| Where-Object {$_.Name -like "*$($Config.Network.NameSearch)*" -and $_.State -eq 'Running'}).Name

with the method you choose. You can use the TestConfig.Json to filter in the same way if you wish

You can also output to HTML using reportunit.exe in the Pester Test To XML and HTML file
