In addition to using the save results feature, you can also save SilverCreek test results in a journal log.

The journal log is a runtime log whereas saving the results is a postlog.

The difference is that the save results command creates a log of the outcoming details of the test results, while the journal saves to a log file and contains sent and received packet information and timestamps on when the tests start.

In short, the journal log is a detailed log of everything SilverCreek and the agent did during the test, including the outcome.

You can control the amount of information added to your log file by clicking “log”, then “journal preferences.”

Here you can choose whether or not to log packets sent by SilverCreek, packets sent to SilverCreek, SNMP details, and hex dumps of packets sent and received.

To start a new journal log, click “log” > “new journal”.

Choose a name for your log and click “save.”

The journal log is saved in pipe-delimited text format.

SilverCreek indicates at the bottom left of your screen that your journal log is open.

The next step is to run one or more tests.

After the desired testing is finished, close the journal by clicking “log” > “close”

Later, you could come back to where you left off by simply loading the journal file.

If you wish to resume testing where you left off, loading a saved journal log restores the test suite to the same state it was in when you saved it.

You can view the log results in any text editor.

The journal file is very useful in regression testing.

With it, you can easily compare past with present test results.
