An alternative is to use those two listeners, but only capture "Errors".  I can't imagine any
value (for analysis) of reviewing thousands of "successful" request/responses (can you say
data overload?)... But if you check the little box on the listener to just capture errors,
then those listeners are quite useful.

Of course, you have to make sure that your test returns an error when something goes awry.
You can use Assertions for this. In our tests, each request has at least one assert associated
with it, looking in the response for some string that should be present if the request was
successful, but absent if it fails. This assures we get an error logged in the Tree listener
when a request does do what we expected it to do.

No you don't need these 2 listeners for analysis with 100 threads and 2
hours run.

These 2 listeners are to be used during scripting debug with 1 to 5 users
max and with few seconds to very few minutes of run, once your script is
debugged and OK,
you must remove them and absolutely not use them during load test.

With 100 threads, I doubt you really need distributed testing
