Working with Pal v2 Alpha 5, which is installed to the default c:\Program Files\PAL\PAL v2.0 Alpha 5. I'd like to be able to store the perfmon logs (.blg) files in a different directory so that I can organize them by project or engagement. For
other applciations and files I use c:\workarea as the base and then create a subdirectory for each engagement. When I try and organize the files in this way, PAL fails to execute because it cannot fine the correct files. I am starting PAL from
the PALWizard and it generates the following command line:
C:\workarea\engagement>Powershell .\PAL.ps1 -Log 'C:\workarea\engagement\System Overview -w- Terminal Services - v1.5.3_000001.blg' -ThresholdFile 'C:\Program Files\PAL\PAL v2.0 Alpha 5\SystemOverview.xml' -Interval 'AUTO' -IsOutputHtml $True -HtmlOutputFileName
'[LogFileName]_PAL_ANALYSIS_[DateTimeStamp]_[GUID].htm' -IsOutputXml $False -XmlOutputFileName '[LogFileName]_PAL_ANALYSIS_[DateTimeStamp]_[GUID].xml' -AllCounterStats $False -OutputDir 'C:\workarea\engagement\PAL Reports' -NumberOfProcessors 8 -ThreeGBSwitch
$False -SixtyFourBit $False -TotalMemory 36
It seems that the PALWizard is starting powershell in the directory that I specify for the .blg files and assumes the PAL.ps1 file will be in that directory instead of the install path. Is there a way to modify this behavior? If I move the .blg
files to the PAL install path everything works fine, but I would like to avoid the manual step of re-organizing the files after.
p.s. I love the tool and thank you for putting so much time and effort into something that makes this poor capacity planner/performance analyst's life a little easier.
