gns4566 is on a distinguished road

I would like to save surface data during runtime.

My controlDict file is like this

type surfaces;
functionObjectLibs ("");
outputControl outputTime;

surfaceFormat foamfile;
fields ( p U );

interpolationScheme cellPoint;

type cuttingPlane;
planeType pointAndNormal;
basePoint (0 0 0);
normalVector (0 0 1);
interpolate true;

if i use surfaceFormat foamfile, there are no post processing file in it.

or if i use surfaceForamt VTK, I don't know what is this result..

Could anyone help? I want to know I write down controdict file correctly..
