perfmon :: relog perfmon .tsv or .csv files to .blg

When we run batch jobs, we don’t use Loadrunner, we just run our Vugen script inside Vugen. Its perfect because we don’t need load, we’re just sending sql commands to a DB and starting/stopping services. This means that we dont get to use Loadruner’s awesome metrics collection engine to correlate results. So we kick off jobs in Perfmon.
Ideally, saving them as BLG *(Binary files) is great because you can use the Perfmon GUI to view the metrics. But when you save them as TSV or CSV (for whatever reason) you lose the GUI ease of use. Luckily ‘relog’ has the feature to convert the log. read more »

What has come to my attention is the ridiculous size of the scripts while you’re editing/building/modifying them. It has become such a concern to us that our current scripts directory is sitting at 19.5GB, and if that’s not ridiculous enough, we’re looking at 226K files. So I write a little script to delete all the unneeded files.
Proceed at your own risk! read more »
