Can someone explain to me how I should use debugging in LogjnVSI 4.x?
I see options for debugging in settings (for Engine and Workload), but after selecting this and running a new test all my Debug folders (VSIShared\_VSI_Logfiles\Debug and VSIShared\_VSI_Logfiles\<Testname>\Debug) stay empty (even after I got a session stuck on purpose ;) ). For version 3.x it was clear (session log in ActiveDebugLog), but in documentation 4.x I can't find any info about it.

I need to debug to find out why I sometimes receive a completely different VSIMax when running the same test over and over.

Kind regards,

Hi Rene,

When the debug option is enabled you can see this when the label is red instead of green.
The logfiles are stored within the session in %tmp%\VSI\DebugLogging.

When a session is stuck it will create two screenshots and copy the screenshots & logfiles to the share.
This routine will take 120 seconds in total including retrying to continue the workload.

Did you see a error message provided by Login VSI in your session when the session is stuck on purpose?

With kind regards,

“Login VSI is my favorite test orchestration and simulation tool for large-scale reference architecture testing. Not only do we use it in our testing, but we work with partners who use Login VSI exclusively, with the idea that you create the most realistic simulated workload at scale, to really test infrastructure and software capabilities. What’s more, getting the results and be able to measure yourself across platforms and across vendor solutions is just fantastic and is unequalled in the industry.”
