2. What is the protocol you are recording?
3. If HTML - are you using HTML-Advanced with URLs or,
4. If URL mode:
5. Which LoadRunner/PerformanceCenter feature or service packs are you using?
6. VuGen Recording - are you using Old or New Recording Engine?
7. What kind of LoadRunner license do you have -
9. What platform(s) (PCs) and Operating Systems? Include version and service packs.

10. If you have filed a service request with HP/Mercury, what have they told you at this point with respect to your issue?
NO reply as yet
I was running a large scale performance test on my organisations web platform and at the end of the run the controler failed to retreive the results file from the generator. I assumed that it was an issue at the genertor side and that i might need to increase the capacity of my generator boxes to cope with this process. When looking at the logs from these machines CPU, memory, disk and TCPIP calls were all within normal parameters. Has anyone had this kind of issue in the past and can you suggest any preventitive actions.
I am going to be required to re run the tests which will require support staff plus a possible production outage and I am keen not to have a similar issue again.
I am attemting to run a scenario of 10 simple web scripts with a vuser number of 3000. Does this sound like I need more capacity in my loadrunner infrastructure? are there any guidlines on infrastucture capacity against load generation?
Thanks for all your help and as I have not used this forum much in the past I hope I have followed the guidelines corectly.
Re: Controler Fails to retrieve results file
Can you determine how large the results files are? Did you run out of disk space? I know you said disk was within normal parms.
What is the network capacity between the controller and generator? Is this network exclusive to your load farm?
What was the exact error message related to the failure?
Also, can you access the Windows event logs on the generator to see if anything is related?
What is the profile of both controller and generator in terms or computing power, RAM, and disk?
You indeed have followed the guidelines correctly. You are rare and welcome here. Thank you
