Controller error reading directory compression stream MERR-51980

Hi,


I'm getting the following error when trying to run a simple scenario with 20 VU on a remote generator:


 -51980 Error: Mercury File Transfer: Error in reading directory C:\projects\ecm-ce compression stream. rc = -1.    [MsgId: MERR-51980]    [MsgId: MERR-51980]


Directory C:\projects\ecm-ce is used by the script and is defined in the Group Information -> Files tab. I verified the directory is available and accessible locally.


Increasing the trace level results in the following output window:



Any idea what could be the problem?

 

Thanks in advance.

What is the weight of this folder?

 

Did you solve this issue by now?

Re: Controller error reading directory compression stream MERR-51980

Unfortunately I have no information about the weight of the folder anymore because I deleted it a long time ago.

 

I gave up on this error soon after it occurred and started anew with a different test strategy allowing me to steer clear of this problem and I've never seen it occur again so far.

Re: Controller error reading directory compression stream MERR-51980

I understand....

 

For what it is worth, I believe it might be related to size of the folder. If it was very big (e.g. >500MB) then LoadRunner might fail on timeout while trasfering the files from the Controller to the Load Geneator.

 

The user case in itself is interesting... I think there are other ways to handle something like that, as you already figured out.
