Enabling Controlled Experimentation

To enable controlled experimentation, someone with administrator access to your web or application servers must modify the ExpFile parameter in the Sensor configuration file (usually named using txlogd.conf) on each web or application server in your web cluster on which a Sensor is installed.
In addition, two other parameters in this file can be modified to implement a testing tool (ExpCookieURL parameter) or to remap large sections of your website (ExpPartialMatch parameter). This chapter provides more information about these parameters.
To edit the txlogd.conf file
If you have administrator access, complete the following steps. If you do not have administrator access, contact your system architect to request the changes, providing them with the following steps.
  1. Navigate to the Sensor installation folder on a web or application server in your web cluster on which a Sensor is installed.
  2. Open the Sensor configuration file (usually named using txlogd.conf) using a text editor and edit the file as indicated in Modifying the ExpFile Parameter .
  3. Save and close the file.
  4. Repeat this procedure for each web or application server in your web cluster on which a Sensor is installed.
