Files are not downloaded during a Browser Driven Load Test in Silk Performer 15.5 when using Remote Agent machines
When running a browser driven load test within Silk Performer 15.5 that includes logic to download a file(s) to a local disk, i.e:
The file will be stored within the project's results folder*. This is both true for a load test and a TryScript.
There is a known issue within Silk Performer 15.5 in that the downloaded files are not written to the project’s result folder when a remote agent machine is used during test execution**.
The problem lies in the agent processes (specifically the perfBrowserHost process) trying to write the file to the wrong results directory.
This problem has been acknowledged as a bug and will be officially addressed with the release of Silk Performer 16.0.
* For recording, files are stored in the current project folder
** The problem is only applicable when running a load test with a remote agent. Using the local machine as an agent, the downloaded files will be correctly stored within the results directory.
