NuGet Specs

MSpec TeamCity Parallel Runner (mspec-teamcity-prunner.exe)

mspec-teamcity-prunner.exe is a drop-in replacement for the standard mspec runner which runs test assemblies in parallel. The NuGet package is called 'Machine.Specifications.TeamCityParallelRunner'.

Use the --threads N parameter to specify how many assemblies to process at the same time.

Some differences with the standard runner:

  • Some command line options are not supported and won't do anything if used. Details below.
  • There is no real-time progress monitoring ("10 tests ran", "15 test ran", etc.), but full results are available the same way as in the standard runner.

Note that some command line options are not supported and won't do anything if specified and have been kept only for compatibility. See below for details.
