Encountered the following error "Could not find any trace files to import with template of 'CAPTURE_<YYYYDDMMHH24MISS>*.trc' in the shared directory"
Steps to reproduce:
From the Load Scenario Wizard, select "Capture and Replay Oracle Workload", then click Next to select the capture name then click Next again.
The error means that Benchmark Factory for Databases (BMF) cannot locate the trace files in the shared folder.
The "could not find any trace files to import with template of in the shared directory" message was displayed because the trace ran for only 4 seconds. Also a user has to login after the capture has been started in order for BMF to correctly trace.
Please make sure there are trace files (eg. *CAPTURE_20121402153613*.trc) in the shared folder and the user have enough privileges to read those files.
If only <sid>_ora_*.trc files are written (eg. orcl_ora_12117.trc) then this could mean the session has been connected to database before the capture started. BMF capture cannot change the trace file name of a connected session. Alternatively the trace files can replayed by choosing the "Replay load from Oracle Trace file(s)" option in the Load Scenario wizard.
