The Historical Server files are:
Control file – All recording sessions for the same Historical Server use the same control file. For information about multiple Historical Server instances and control files, see “Configuring multiple instances of Historical Server”.
Error message file – Each recording session has its own error message file. The file is empty if no errors are logged for the session.
Data file – Each view in a recording session is represented by a data file. The data file holds all of the samples collected for the view during the session.
Script file – When you define a recording session using the hs_create_recording_session command, the script_type parameter can specify creation of a SQL script file. The script file defines a Adaptive Server table for each view in the recording session.
You can use the Bulk Copy (bcp) utility to populate existing Adaptive Server tables. If you are a UNIX user, you can put subsets of the fields into separate Adaptive Server tables if you first invoke the cut utility to strip the desired columns from the file.
