Thread: Kettle logs to database, START_DATE issue.

  1. #1

    Default Kettle logs to database, START_DATE issue.

    Hi All,

    I am writing kettle logs to database in pre-created table named as "TRANSFORMATION_LOGS" and "STEP_LOGS"

    When I ran my first job, START_DATE is getting write as "1/1/1900 4:30:00 AM"
    other dates are getting write in correct format but not START_DATE.

    Can anybody resolve this?

    One more small doubt I have is, kettle is not properly writing START_DATE and END_DATE at transformation level.

    Please correct me if I am wrong.

    This is correct behavior. START_DATE describes the start of the date range for CDC purposes, not the start of the transformation as documented in the transformation dialog in 4.x.

    Thanks for explanation.

    One more thing is giving trouble to me here is,

    I set connection details and LINE_INPUT/LINE_UPDATED information at transformation level.

    But when I tries to execute Job.xml from command promt as below:
    "D:\pentaho data integration-4.0>kitchen.bat /file:"E:\project_temp\project_out\p_tar\KETTLE\mssql_tar_rule\0\0.xml" /level:detailed logging"

    LINE_INPUT/LINE_UPDATED remains 0 instead of actual rows input and updated count.

    If same job file I will open and run in Spoon, those columns shows proper numbers in it in database.

    Did you specify which steps these metrics should represent.
    In any case, if you want details set up a step logging table.

    Hi Matt, thanks for reply.

    I could able to fix this issue, as by setting database connection and log table details at job level from code. Then its properly storing read/ write count for underlying transformation/ steps.
