(PC) Support tip: Change the Controller results location in Performance Center

In Performance Center, the results folder in Controller machine cannot be change, the results folder are located in C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Performance Center Host\orchidtmp\Results. If you need to change the location of the results folder you will need to re-install the Host Software in the drive that you need it. R&D is considering to include this feature in future releases. 

Also, if you are interested in how to configure the TEMP folder used by the Load Generator during the test execution you can find how to do it here.

Re: (PC) Support tip: Change the Controller results location in Performance Center

It might be considered as a good option not installing the host on the system drive (the drive where the OS is installed) for at least 2 reasons:

1// Capacity – if lot of temporary space is being used by the host, then system drive will run out of space and OS will hang

2// Performance – The OS itself and PC software will compete for the same resources (Disk I/O) on the system drive being resulted in decreased performance

It is also a good practice to keep the path where installed rather short, otherwise you can run into trouble if script names are too long together with the Domain and project name. This is as the path will be present twice on the loadgenerators for the scripts and results. The hard limit is 256 characters:

C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Performance Center Host\Temp\brr_4U4.930\netdir\C\Program Files (x86)\HP\Performance Center Host\orchidtmp\Results\PC-DOMAIN_PROJECTNAME_1833\Run_1833\res1833\

or

C:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Performance Center Host\Temp\brr_4U4.930\netdir\C\Program Files (x86)\HP\Performance Center Host\scripts\636203277011049619\Very_Long_and_descriptive_scriptname\

 

So only moving to "D:\Program Files (x86)\HP\Performance Center Host\" is not good enough. Move to something shorter like

D:\PC-Host\
