This is a follow-up post for a question I answered on StackOverflow. There might be times where you would want to control the instances in the emulator as if you were really running in Windows Azure. Increasing the number of instances, decreasing the number of instances, reacting on a configuration change or even killing a few instances to test the resiliency of your application. Even though this isn’t really documented, you can do all of these things with the emulator.
