Daily average or total with evaperf?

I tried:
evaperf vd -csv -cont 86400 -dur 86400

I thought it would run for 24 hours (86,400 seconds) and then give me either the averages or totals for the 24 hour period. Instead it gave me that for each hour so I had 24 result sets.

How would I get it to give me one result set for a 24 hour period?

Re: Daily average or total with evaperf?

That would run for 24 hours but you want to change the -cont variable.

That tells it at what point to take a reading.

Re: Daily average or total with evaperf?

The -dur specifies overall duration. So 86400 does 24 hours which is what evaperf did.

The -cont specifies the intervals within the duration. I told it to do 86400 (24 hours) but it did 3600 (1 hour steps).

You can't run evaperf with -dur and NOT have -cont. Default for -cont is 1 second.

My suspicion is that the max -cont that evaperf will do is 1 hour. So any value above 3600 is ignore and it uses 3600. I can't find any confirmation of that in writing though.
