VuGen hangs when trying to open a large “replay.vdf” file

VuGen hangs when trying to open a large "replay.vdf" file

After recording a Tuxedo script, one of the files attached to the script is "replay.vdf." When trying to open it, or scrolling down on it, the VuGen Editor hangs.

Diagnosis:This happens because the replay.vdf file is large, colorful and used a lot of comments.

Solution

Improving the performance

In order to improve performance you can do the following:

1. Cancel the coloring of C-Comment and improve the opening of the file.

a. Go to C:\winnt and bring up vugen.ini.

b. Under the section for [General], add:

MaxCommentLine=0 ;

2. Hide reply buffers from the server from the replay.vdf file. (Note: This can make it hard to correlate the script, but will significantly cut down the size of the replay.vdf file.)

a. Go to C:\winnt and bring up vugen.ini.

b. Under the section for [TUXEDO], add/modify: SHOW_REPLIES=0
