Description higuita 2014-04-17 00:11:25 UTC
I have done several tests and "saved" the results... sadly the save directory had the wrong permissions and the save failed. The problem is that jmeter returns no feedback that the save failed. When one see no error, assume that the write was successful. Closing jmeter and trying to check the results i found that i didn't really saved anything and having closed jmeter, i lost all the test results.

checking the console i could see this error: 

2014/04/15 22:07:05 WARN  - jmeter.visualizers.StatVisualizer: /home/higuita/StressTests/kaltura/kaltura_stresstest_100MbLimit.csv (Permission denied) 

So jmeter do warns the user, but in a way that the user will not see. jmeter needs to popup a warning when save fails and not be silent and only warn in the background.

In GUI mode, jmeter shows in upper right zone a number of errors/warnings.
Poping up an error would work in GUI mode but is not an option for NON GUI mode.

Thanks for the report.

Agreed - JMeter could do better when it fails to save files from the GUI.
The same issue affects various other elements such as Cookie Manager.
