Thread: Heap Error but job status still 'SUCCESS'. How to capture the error

    Question Heap Error but job status still 'SUCCESS'. How to capture the error

    Hi All,

    We have scheduled our kettle jobs using hudson where we get email notification if final exist state of the job is 'FAILURE'
    Yesterday I see that job had a java heap size error in between but at the end it still says 'Job Completed successfully' ( and no error email was sent)

    If we try to capture anytime a step in the job gives 'ERROR', we get so many email.

    So if a job or ktr has a failure somewhere during execution but still the completion status is 'SUCCESS', what might be the best way to capture this ?
    One option that I can think is scanning the execution log file after job is complete. If anywhere there is a ERROR word in the log, then send an email for error notification

    Have you checked what is the size of java option in spoon. please post here. we try to help.

    and Please try with ABORT step (connect to your transformation or job where ever you are getting success notification) and try again

    if [ -z "$PENTAHO_DI_JAVA_OPTIONS" ]; then
    PENTAHO_DI_JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xms1024m -Xmx2048m -XX:MaxPermSize=256m"
