Configuring Result Settings

  1. In the Silk Performer menu, click Settings > System .
  2. Click the Results tab.
  3. Select the Merge time series data on agents option in the Time series data area for time series data files (.tsd) to be merged in the agent computers where they were created and to ensure that only the merged files are sent to the controller computer. This is especially useful for quickly processing the results of long load tests as the calculations will then be distributed to various processors and less traffic will be sent over the network. The drawback, however, is that time series data files for individual virtual users are not available on the controller computer.
    Note: If you do not select this option, you will have to manually merge the time series data files in Performance Explorer to get overall results for the load test.
  4. Select Write JUnit result to let Silk Performer generate a short load test summary in the standardized JUnit format.
  5. Enable Limit messages per agent and enter a value. If an agent exceeds this limit, Silk Performer reports a message with a customizable severity.
