What are the different types of time series data (TSD) files (m@, i@, a@, u@, r@, t@, k@, n@)?

What are the different types of time series data (TSD) files (m@, i@, a@, u@, r@, t@, k@, n@)?

Merged files begin with m@.  These contain the time-series data from all agents, and are generated by the load-test controller.

 

Intermediate files begin with i@.  These are generated by the load-test agents and contain all the time-series data from one agent, including data from all virtual users running on that agent.

 

Agent files begin with a@.  These contain the time-series data from one agent.  During a load test these files are generated on the agent, and are then merged together with all user data into an intermediate file.

 

User files begin with u@.  These contain the time-series data from one virtual user. During a load test these files are generated on the agents and are then merged together with all other user files into an intermediate file.

 

Real time files begin with r@.  These contain the time series data generated by server-side monitoring.

 

Agent files per User Type begin with t@.  These contain the time-series data of a certain user type from one agent.

 

Merged files per User Type begin with  k@.  These contain the time-series data for a certain user type from all agents. They are generated by the load-test controller.

 

Region files begin with n@.    These contain the time-series data for a certain region.

 

Additional Information
"TSD_H" are intermediate files created at runtime, one for Measure Names and one for Data. These two files are merged into one tsd file at the end of a load test and are usually automatically removed at the end the test.

m@@ are remerged files created by the 'Custom merge wizard' in Silk Performance Explorer.
