Thread: Debugging a Dashboard

  1. #1

    Default Debugging a Dashboard

    Hi, I am new to Dashboards and am starting out by attempting to get the basic Pentaho Sample to work with our Postgres database. I have managed to get a Pie Chart and Bar Chart working but am having trouble with the dial chart:

    SolutionEngine.ERROR_0007 - Action sequence execution failed

    This error message doesn't mean much to me, I'm afraid.

    Can anyone tell me whether there is a way to 'step through' execution of the dashboard files in order to pinpoint the error. Or failing, that, is there a log file with more detailed error info.

    Many Thanks.

    Tomcat's catalina.out and the firefox, firebug plugin are your friends, although thats generic xaction error, so you need to workout which xaction is failing, set its debug level to debug and see if you can find out more .
    This is a signature.... everyone gets it.

    Thanks for quick reply.

    The logging level in the problem xaction (DepartmentDialChart.xaction) is set as follows...

    <logging-level>DEBUG</logging-level>

    ... but all I'm getting in the catalina.out file is:

    15:07:44,353 ERROR [SolutionEngine] a305476b-1f8f-11de-b26d-0b6380e63c4a:SOLUTION-ENGINEepartmentDialChart.xaction: SolutionEngine.ERROR_0007 - Action sequence execution failed

    I've noticed references to DEBUG_FILE_PATH in some posts - does this contain the location of a more detailed log file? Where is the value of DEBUG_FILE_PATH set?

    I've never heard of debug_file_path, I'd check the contents of catalina.out for a stack if I were you.

    Thanks.

    I've checked the catalina.out again but the only error message for the time I last attempted to load the dashboard is the single line I mentioned previously.

    When I hover over the error message in the failed dashboard, however, I can see 5 of messages starting 'Error:' and 'Debug:'. Do you know in which file these are stored? Is it possible that there is more detail there?
