How to save the Test Log data under Rational Performance Tester

Technote (FAQ)


Question

How do you save the Test Log data under IBM Rational Performance Tester (RPT)?

Cause

Generally the Test log data gets deleted after the log transfer completes. Due to this you cannot validate the data related to the run-time execution of the test schedule.

Answer

You can add the following parameters to the RPT_VMARGS value for each of the agent machines.

-DrptSaveTempFiles=true

Example:

RPT_VMARGS =  -Xmx1500m -DrptSaveTempFiles=true

With this setting, the Temporary test log data will remain in the following two files located under the playback's deployment_root directory:

rpt.<location_name>.<number1>.testlog
rpt.<location_name>.Annotation<number2>.tmp



Example:

<agent_root_directory>\deployment_root\<LoginID>\<GUID>

Note: With the above settings, you will be forced to periodically remove these log files from the agent machine, else the data gets accumulated over time.
