This chapter explains how information is logged and how you can trace data.
The Endeca Connector writes the basic processing information to the Oracle DataLens Server log file as it is processing data.
Ensure that your Oracle DataLens Server is running.
Open one of the following supported Web browsers for your environment:
Internet Explorer 8.0 or later and Internet Explorer 9.0 or later
Mozilla Firefox 4.0 or later and Firefox 5.0 or later
Google Chrome 12.0 or later
Safari 5.0 or later
Enter the following URL:
where hostname is the DNS name or IP address of the Administration Server and port is the listen port on which the Administration Server is listening for requests (port 2229 by default).
If you configured the Administration Server to use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) you must add s after http as follows:
When the login page appears, enter a user name and the password. Typically, this is the user name and password you specified during the installation process.
The Oracle DataLens Server Web pages are displayed and default to the Welcome tab.
Select the Administration tab.
From the Admin Dashboard panel, click the Admin Log.
Following is an example of the logging entries that are output from the Endeca Connector Dimension Discovery to the server log.

There are similar log entries for the Property Discovery and Precedence Rule Discovery. There are also entries added when anything is deleted by the Endeca Connector.
Check for errors or warnings in the log file for problems with the Endeca Connector load process. Notice that in the preceding example, there is a warning.
The section describe how to use tracing in the Endeca Connector DSAs.
The Endeca Connector Attribute Discovery DSA outputs all the information on the Attributes that were discovered in the Oracle DataLens Server and exactly how these are mapped to the Endeca dimensions and properties. Normally tracing does not need to be turned on, unless you are identifying a problem in the Endeca Connector Processing.
You can turn on tracing by setting the DSA Add-In transformation parameter to 'true' from as follows:
Set the PDQDEBUG parameter to 'true', in the Endeca Project pass throughs, to turn on tracing of the Endeca Connector during the Forge processing. The parameter is set in the Endeca Developer Studio as in the following:
This turns on debug tracing so that processing information is written to a log file. You should only set this parameter to true when you are debugging because it slows down the Endeca Connector Adapter.
The following log file is created in the Endeca project directory with all the Endeca Connector tracing information:
There is an optional pass through parameter called
This option is turned on using the following Endeca Java Manipulator pass through:
If it is not set, then the Endeca Connector behaves normally and generates an exception that stops the Forge processing if any of the Endeca Connector threads encounter an error.
If it is set to
true, then the Endeca Connector continues processing, even if it encounters errors (such as bad data, missing descriptions, etc.), and will not cause Forge to terminate processing.
