[FNS-19] ‘Value is not set for the parameter number x’ error while importing data

Description

Problem Description

Due to a bug in FusionAnalytics 1.0.0 the import of log data targeting a BIGINT column fails if the value parsed from the log line has a length of exactly 10 characters. In such cases an error message is written to the fusionanalytics-datacollector.log and the fusionanalytics-datacollector-errors.log log files as shown in the example below:

...

...

Note: FADC will write a similar error message if the format of the log line does not have the expected format as defined in the DCML file. This is expected behavior and in this case only skips the line which could not be parsed.

Problem Fix

The problem can be fixed by installing FusionAnalytics Hotfix 1.0.1. Please see FNS-20 for more information.

[FNS-18] Truncation errors while importing data

Description

Truncation errors while importing data

You may find that the default column widths configured by the Analytics for FusionReactor application (e.g. fusionreactor-fadc-1.0.5-DCAPP.zip) are not long enough for the data supplied by your server. If a value is too big to fit into the belonging target column the value will be truncated before it is inserted and an error message is written to the fusionanalytics-datacollector.log and fusionanalytics-datacollector-error.log files as shown below:

...
2011-11-03T10:59:45.135-0400 [FADC-importer-3] ERROR [com.intergral.fusionanalytics.dc.evt.FileMonitorEventHandler] myApp/myDC/request.log: 2011-11-03 10:59:45,135 [LINE] 6578 [ERROR] "myApp/myDC/request.log (ID=3c8ffa2a-413f-472b-b0cc-fab9c277854f): Truncated value of column JSESSIONID from 54 to 50 characters: Original value: d4309ef9d92a84dfeddc5e364d59535b6b26,+cftoken=13194335: Truncated value: d4309ef9d92a84dfeddc5e364d59535b6b26,+cftoken=13194335" [INPUT] "2011-11-03 10:57:01.692 1320332221692 4 1320259710907 98327 COMPLETED "" jrpp-124 10.10.37.249 GET http://10.0.0.10/index.cfm 93 15 8108992 1221932 8108992 6887059 "fuseaction=lms.enterClassSection&classSectionId=48506" 302 78 "" d4309ef9d92a84dfeddc5e364d59535b6b26,+cftoken=13194335 387467 85523722 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 93"
...

In this case you can change the column size as follows:

1. Stop the FusionAnalytics Service/Daemon
2. Open the DCML file of the application you want to change (e.g. C:FusionAnalyticsServerdatafadcApplicationsmyApplicationmyApplication.dcml) in an editor.
3. Search all columns definitions you want to update and replace their column size with the new value.

Example: Changing the size of the JSESSIONID column from 50 to 100

<FadcConfig version="1.0" xmlns="https://www.fusion-analytics.com/datacollector">
  <DataOutput dbType="mssql">
    ...
    <Table name="request_status" engine="InnoDB">
      ...
      <Column type="varchar(50)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    ...
    <Table name="request" engine="InnoDB">
      <Column type="varchar(50)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    ...
    <Table name="crashprotection" engine="InnoDB">
      <Column type="varchar(50)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    <Table name="request_status_report" engine="InnoDB">
      <Column type="varchar(50)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    ...

becomes

<FadcConfig version="1.0" xmlns="https://www.fusion-analytics.com/datacollector">
  <DataOutput dbType="mssql">
    ...
    <Table name="request_status" engine="InnoDB">
      ...
      <Column type="varchar(100)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    ...
    <Table name="request" engine="InnoDB">
      <Column type="varchar(100)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    ...
    <Table name="crashprotection" engine="InnoDB">
      <Column type="varchar(100)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    <Table name="request_status_report" engine="InnoDB">
      <Column type="varchar(100)" required="false" name="jsessionid"/>
    </Table>
    ...

4. Save the updated DCML file
5. Update the columns in the database

Following the example above, you should now execute the following SQL statements:

-- MySQL
ALTER TABLE CRASHPROTECTION MODIFY JESSESIONID VARCHAR(100); 
ALTER TABLE REQUEST MODIFY JESSESIONID VARCHAR(100); 
ALTER TABLE REQUEST_STATUS MODIFY JESESSIONID VARCHAR(100); 
ALTER TABLE REQUEST_STATUS_REPORT MODIFY JESSESIONID VARCHAR(100); 

-- Microsoft SQL Server
ALTER TABLE CRASHPROTECTION ALTER COLUMN JESESSIONID VARCHAR(100);
ALTER TABLE REQUEST ALTER COLUMN JESESSIONID VARCHAR(100);
ALTER TABLE REQUEST_STATUS ALTER COLUMN JESESSIONID VARCHAR(100);
ALTER TABLE REQUEST_STATUS_REPORT ALTER COLUMN JESESSIONID VARCHAR(100);

6. Restart the FusionAnalytics Service/Daemon

This completed the procedure. You can now insert data with JESESSIONID values up to 100 characters long without truncation errors.

[FNS-16] Resetting the password for the FADC and FADS admin login

Description

Resetting the password for the FADC and FADS admin login

Description

During the Setup you are asked to provide a password for the admin user used by FADC and FADS. If you can’t remember the password you have entered in this step you can follow the procedure described below to set a new password. This requires access to the file system of the computer where FusionAnalytics Server is installed.

Resetting Passwords

To reset the password used for the admin user first stop the FusionAnalytics Server.
Next create the two files fadc.pwd and admin.txt as described below defining the new password you want to use. For FADC remove the FADC-SDB directory. Start the FusionAnalytics Server again. During startup these files will be processed, the passwords updated and a new version of the FADC-SDB directory created. Once the passwords have been updated successfully the fadc.pwd and admin.txt files are deleted.

In the following we assume FusionAnalytics is installed in the default directory. Change the path shown below if you have installed it to a different directory.

We recommend to use the same password for the admin user in FADC and FADS.

FADC

Remove the directory

C:\FusionAnalytics\Server\bin\FADC-SDB

Create a new text file

C:\FusionAnalytics\Server\webapps\fadc\fadc.pwd

with the following content:

password=myNewPassword

Replace ‘myNewPassword’ with the password you want to use. The length of the password must be at least 1 and not exceed 16 characters.

FADS

Create a new text file

C:\FusionAnalytics\Server\webapps\fads\WEB-INF\classes\admin.txt

with the following content:

myNewPassword

Replace ‘myNewPassword’ with the password you want to use.

Restart the FusionAnalytics server and then login to FADC/FADS to check that the new passwords have been applied.
