The objective of Vdbench is to measure storage performance. When you save the performance information generated by Vdbench for future use it can happen that 6 months down the road you ask your self: "what were the details of the system status at the time of this run"? Vdbench on Solaris each time runs the 'config.sh' script distributed in the /solaris/ or /solx86/ sub directory. This script includes commands like prtdiag and cfgadm; the output is stored in file 'config.html'
With systems getting larger and more complex every day, these commands can take quite a while to complete and can some times take 30-60 seconds, delaying the actual starting of Vdbench.
If you do not care about recording this data create a file named 'noconfig' in your Vdbench install directory, and Vdbench from that point on will bypass running 'config.sh'.
