LS User Services Test

This test monitors the user service of the Microsoft Skype for Business server and reports how well the stored procedure calls were made, how many notifications and subscribes were sent through this service, how many active endpoints were connected etc. Using this test, administrators may figure out the slowdowns if any, in the user service by identifying the stored procedures that are taking too long to execute and take remedial measures to sort out the issue that is causing the slowdown.
