Session Files in Oracle VTS
In Oracle VTS 7.0 all user selectable options can be saved in a
file called a session file. This file encapsulates all the selectable options in
the tool and saves them in an XML file. The user can select
the necessary testing options and save them in this file, which can be
loaded later to apply all the saved options. When a user saves a
session file, the options are saved in all three stress levels, that is,
Online Mode, System Exerciser and Component Stress. Similarly when a session file is
loaded, the options of all the three stress levels are loaded. There are
two types of session files.
Generic Session File
Default file type for session files. Generic session
files are used if a session file is created on one host and
used on other hosts with different configuration. When users load this type of
session file on a host with different configuration, Oracle VTS applies the options
that it can apply and leaves the rest as is.
Host Specific Session
Users saves this type of session file if they intend to use it
in systems with similar configurations or want to be restrictive in the application
of options. When loading this kind of file, Oracle VTS applies only the
options to the devices for which it can find a match and other
devices and options are disabled.
