Problem this snippet solves:

This script will automate performance testing for web page load times using the HttpWatch's API. It will perform initial and then return visit measurements, archive the HttpWatch .hwl files for the requests, and build a .CSV file for importing into Excel for post processing.

How to use this snippet:

PS> # Change IP Address to VIP 1
PS> .\DC-WATest.ps1 > results.csv
PS> # Change IP address to VIP 2
PS> .\DC-WAText.ps1 -WA >> results.csv
