Name of Service / Action which helps to run the BSM synthetic scripts in the background?

Can someone please tell me, which service / action / executable is being invoked while BSM runs the synthetic scripts through BPM? I mean the service /action which helps to run the scripts in the background.

I'd like to know the name and path of the above.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Viswa,

as of BPM 9.23 and newer,
we have this process structure (under Windows)

BPM runs as a service
wininit.exe
  services.exe
    bpm_nanny.exe
       bpm.exe
         mdrv.exe
         ..
         mdrv.exe


BPM runs as a user process
explorer.exe
  cmd.exe
     bpm.exe
       mdrv.exe
       ..
       mdrv.exe


In the end you have bpm.exe launching one mdrv.exe process per script it executes.

mdrv.exe lives in the LGSA installation path, for example
 C:\HP\LoadGenerator\bin\mdrv.exe

and is called via (for example)

C:\HP\LoadGenerator\bin\mdrv.exe -usr C:\ProgramData\HP\BPM\workspace\agent1\Site1\BA_BPM_all_s_2c24ccb3c9845f4b8dbbb52ae2744f30_1\all_status\13_1\all_status.usr -out C:\ProgramData\HP\BPM\workspace\agent1\Site1\BA_BPM_all_s_2c24ccb3c9845f4b8dbbb52ae2744f30_1\all_status\13_1\res -bpm_in C:\ProgramData\HP\BPM\workspace\agent1\Site1\BA_BPM_all_s_2c24ccb3c9845f4b8dbbb52ae2744f30_1\all_status\13_1\res\all_status.metadata -bpm_out C:\ProgramData\HP\BPM\workspace
..
