The current implementation of sampler sender for distributed testing has different modes but all of them eventually write file to master controlling the test. Some of us prefer using DiskStorage mode of distributed testing to save network bandwidth but transfer of test result after test run is over is very very slow.

It would be beneficial to have mode - localOnly which keeps results in jtl format on slave machines and could be scp/aggregated once test execution is over.

Something similar was asked here - http://stackoverflow.com/questions/12979003/in-jmeter-distributed-remote-testing-is-it-possible-to-store-results-file-on

A work-round is to run separate non-GUI tests on each server host.

But really the question is: why is the sending of disk-based results so slow?
