Set Results Directory Dialog Box

This dialog box enables you to set the location in which the Controller saves scenario run results.

To access
Results > Results Settings
Important information
If you have an open connection to an ALM project, the Controller saves the results to a test set. You can also save the results directly to disk using the standard file system.
Relevant tasks

User interface elements are described below:

UI Element
Automatically create a results directory for each scenario execution
Instructs LoadRunner to create a unique results folder for each scenario run. By default, the result names are res1, res2, res3, and so on.
Automatically overwrite existing results directory without prompting for confirmation
Instructs LoadRunner to automatically overwrite previous result sets, without prompting the user.
A location in the file system under the Results folder, to which the Controller should save the results.

Note: Do not specify an admin/administrator folder, as non-admin users without sufficient permissions may be unable to write to such a folder.

File System
Displays the default LoadRunner folder path.
(only when connected to ALM)
Enables you to save the results to an Application Lifecycle Management test set.
Results Name
Specify a name for the run results.
LoadRunner allows you to give descriptive names to each result set. This is especially useful for cross results analysis, in which LoadRunner superimposes the results of several scenario runs in a single Analysis graph and lets you compare the results of multiple scenario runs. The descriptive graph names enable you to distinguish between the results of the multiple runs.
Results Path
Displays the location for the results as specified in Results Name and Directory.
Avoid using the same name with different paths. Only the names appear on the Analysis graphs. If the result names are identical it will be difficult to distinguish between the runs.
