I ran IOmeter on a Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 server for 18 hours and when I clicked on "Stop current Test and Save Results" it stopped the worker processes (I only had 1).
When looking at the results in the csv file it hardly shows anything...it shows size of blocks (512, 4096 etc) and % of read etc but when looking at the Results section it shows some data from when I started IOMeter and stats of when I stopped it but nothing inbetween?
The file size of the csv is 8kb but the file size of iobw.tst is 31GB! I have a feeling all the data is being stored in iobw.tst rather then the results file.
I assume I messed up some setting somewhere or something or is this normal? I don't remember changing any of the default setting except for the view of where I selected "Last Update" instead of "Start of Test"
