Extreme variance between USEDMASKEDVALUES Checked and Unchecked.


Article ID: 102735

CA Test Data Manager (Data Finder / Grid Tools)


The Log file seems to capture a lot of information (despite of the Default DIAGLEVEL) and hence its taking a long time to run. This is happening only when USEDMASKEDVALUES is checked. Attached are the Masking CSVs and Log files when it was run with USEDMASKEDVALUES Checked and Unchecked. When Unchecked it takes only 3 Mins versus when its checked it takes almost 1 Hour.  Why?  How can we reduce the Checked run?
