Error description

  • Test created in earlier versions of RIT now fail.
    If a test has an iterator with a File Subscribe action inside
    it, the File transport polling mechanism slows down the loop.
    Timeouts can then occur as the default polling time is every 10
    seconds.
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    Create a File transport.
    Create a test with an iterator with 10 iterations.
    Add a Subscribe inside the iterator to read a text file.  Keep
    the default 5 seconds timeout.
    Run the test.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The loop executes rapidly.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    The loop is slow to execute and timeouts occur.
