DirXML Trace File Searches

Overview #

DirXML Trace File Searches are some tools we find useful for working with IDM.

We believe you have to know how to read and work with trace files to really know IDM. To get you started see our DirXML Required Reading list.

Typically, we use the 'less' command to view tracfiles.

Use Everyday#

We find we need the common ones on every job:
  • 'Status: Error'
  • 'Status: Warning'

Subscriber Channel #

  • 'ST:Start transaction.' - Find start of transaction
  • 'ST: No matches found.' - Find if Matches were found

Publisher Channel #

  • 'PT:Receiving DOM document from application.'

When a DirXML Driver Started #

  • ':Reading named passwords list.'

When a DirXML Driver properly shut down #

  • 'ST:Driver terminated.'

When DirXML Merge-Resync Process Occurs#

Whenever a "matching" entry is found, the the XML attribute 'from-merge' will be set to "true".

Subscriber Channel#

  • 'Match found:' - When a match is found. You can see the src-dn at this point.
  • 'ST:A match found' - When a match is found, this line will show the association value.
  • 'Merging eDirectory' - Start of the merging process.

Publisher Channel#

  • 'Match found:' - When a match is found. You can see the src-dn at this point.
  • 'PT:Found an associated object.' - This occurs right after 'Applying publisher filter' and indicates Post-filter Association Processor found an entry in the IDV with an association.
  • 'Merging eDirectory' - Start of the merging process.

Find All Errors and Warnings#

This will find all lines with Warning or Error Status and show 5 lines before and 1 line after the line.
 
egrep -B 5 -A 1 'Status: Warning|Status: Error' tracefilename.xml
