Running without writing simulation.log file

We are using gatling for stability testing, i.e we use it only for generating load and do not care about the output simulation log file.

Is there some way to avoid generating the simulation.log file?


Sure, remove “file” from the DataWriters list in gatling.conf + add “-nr” (no-reports) option so Gatling doesn’t try to parse it after the run.

Wow, that’s what I call a quick reply. Thank you so much for the tip :slight_smile:


You’re welcome.

This will be easier in upcoming 2.1:

This doesn’t seem to work now.
I’v changed
#writers = “console, file”
to #writers = “console”

and ran with -nr.

Still stimulation.log is created.

You need to uncomment (remove the leading #) so that the new value is taken into account.
