Does anyone know if QALoad Analyze will eventually open my extremely large timing file? It is about 30MB. I started to open it about 2 hours ago. CPU is pegged at 100% and task manager says the application is not responding. I ran a 5 hour load test; I would hate to lose it just because Analyze won't open it. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
Suggest you get a large machine (P3 or P4) with lots of memory (512Mb or > Then open it with analyzer just before you go home and come back the mext day. Please note, you should have lots of available memory, so close down any services you don't need to run.
Another idea to try might be to use the Enable Timing Data Thinning option in the conductor. If you are using version 5.0 go to the Script Assignment tab and click on Timing Options, select Enable Timing Data Thinning and the give it a number to use. The conductor will then thin the timing data every n transactions which will have the side effect of making your timing file smaller. The logic behind this is that if you are doing a 5 hour test you are not going to need timings for all the transactions.
To solve this issue, you will need to update 2 files in your \QALoad directory. This files worked in a similar problem.
You can open your report with analyze_001.exe or rename it to analyze.exe.
Don't forgot to backup your old files before you
