Error description

  • When running IBM Rational Integration Tester Agent (RIT-Agent)
    as a Windows service you see many files creates in the following
    folder:
    
    C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\LocalService\.rit8\cmd-workspace\inst
    ance1\configuration\org.eclipse.osgi
    
    Typical files are created for each scheduled test run:
    
    .bundledata.nnnnn
    .lazy.nnnnn
    .state.nnnnn
    
    This can cause disk space issues.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Stop the Agent and delete the files periodically.
    
    You can relocate the files to a different location by editing
    RIT-Agent Agent.config as shown:
    
    <application type="VirtualApp" workingDirectory="."
    dataHome="C:/Temp/RIt-Agent/cmd-workspace">

Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    * USERS AFFECTED:                                              *
    * All users of Rational Test Control Panel who run scheduled   *
    * tests.                                                       *
    ****************************************************************
    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * Every time Rational Test Control Panel ran a scheduled test, *
    * three files were created in a work directory.  Because these *
    * files were never cleared, they could fill a user's disk.     *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix for this issue was provided in version 8.7.0.1 of Rational
    Integration Tester. The files are now cleared automatically
    every time a new stub starts up correctly.
