How can I confirm RPT_VMARGS are being applied?

  • 1.  How can I confirm RPT_VMARGS are being applied?

    Hi,

    We have this setting for our Agents:

    RPT_VMARGS = -DrptMaxThreadCount=200

    When I look on the Agent machines (while a Schedule is running using Agents), I see the Java executable start and run with a number of -D options (e.g. -DjdkDigest=false -D rptagent.AgentName=AgentName), but none of the RPT_VMARGS options. How can I verify these options are being applied?

    Thanks

    Hi Michael, been out on vacation just now saw this. I'll follow up next week, this is an interesting question.

    My first guess is these options are siphoned off by the majordomo service which spawns the java process aka the "playback engine"

    Thank you

    so....

    1. turn debug = true in the majordomo.config file
    2. find the majordomo.log file, usually under %TEMP%, here's mine:

    C:\Users\paul.liskay\AppData\Local\Temp\paul.liskay>notepad majordomo.log

    Somewhere in that logfile you'll see something like:

    ...

    Wrote a tech note on this :-)

    "How do I know which RPT_VMARGS properties were used in a schedule in Rational Performance Tester?"
