In
Setting the Location where Run-Time Files are Stored
When you run a scenario, by default the run-time files are stored locally on each
Vuser host. (The Vuser host is the computer that is running the Vuser script.) By
default, the location of the files is under the temporary directory specified by the
host's environment variables (on Windows, TEMP or TMP and on UNIX, $TMPDIR
or $TMP). If the no environment variable is defined, the files are saved to the /tmp
directory.
Note: The run-time file storage settings that are described in this chapter apply to
all the hosts in a scenario. You can change the settings for individual host
machines as described in Chapter 5,
Creating a Host List
.
Besides other file types, run-time files include Vuser script files and result files:
Script files:
When you run a Vuser, the Controller sends a copy of the
associated Vuser script to the Vuser host. The script is
stored in the host's temporary run-time directory.
Result files:
While you run a scenario, the participating Vusers write
their results to the temporary run-time file directory. After
scenario execution, these result files are
collated
or
consolidated--results from all of the hosts are transferred
to the results directory. You set the location of the results
directory as described in Chapter 10,
Running a
Scenario
. After collating the results, the temporary run-
time directory is deleted.
