Memory shortage while running automation suites RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    Here, I am facing some serious issue while running all my automation scenarios at one shot. I have created one environment which is pointing to other machine. Now, I am running all automation tests of MTM through tcm command:

    tcm run /create /title:"Automation Run" /planId:16 /querytext:"select * from TestPoint where configurationId=6" /settingsname:"Client" /testenvironment:"Clients TFBEMEV0268" /collection:http://bemeche1tfs01:8080/tfs/defaultcollection /teamproject:Development

    Here, inside the planId: 16...I have more than 100 of tests. So, when I run this command it starts running my tests. I can see them running on other machine. But, after duration of duration of few hours 2-3 hours its got "aborted".

    I verified the issue and found that there is no available space in that machine where controller is being installed. When I explored this issue more then found that for each run it is creating one folder inside that C:\Windows\ServiceProfiles\NetworkService\AppData\Local\VSEQT\QTController\rm\1975. And inside it is creating two folder "In" & "Out". Inside "In" it is having so many folders and each folder mapped to a test case containg *.iTrace, systemException.xml, EventLog.xml etc. Whereas "Out" folder is having only one Deployement folder containg all required assemblies and input files which are being used by test method.

    So, I have to reduce the size of this folder (1975) which consuming hell lot of memory. Please reply fast so that I can fix this issue before time.
