The Appian Log Reader Plug-in contains functionality to:
Mike- based on your initial post and your reply below you'd thought that "around the upgrade to 20.2" the design_errors.csv log reader feed broke. But maybe it was a simple fix to include the new columns?
I'm not having any 20.2 issue, so I'm not clear what you mean or what the relevance is to this particular issue thread? You might be referring to the one paulc noted in the prior top-level thread, in which case it might be most helpful to reply there and weigh in.
Hi Mike Schmitt and Somnath Dey any update on the 20.2 issue?
Hi Mike Schmitt - I've reached out to the author to see if they can assist with the issue.
After some additional troubleshooting, my theory is that the CSV Log Reader fails due to the fact that around the upgrade to 20.2, the design_errors log picked up several extra columns (and because this was just appended to the same log file, instead of the existing file being archived and a new one begun).
Is anyone monitoring comments here? April Schuppel perhaps? I have a use case that requires me to be able to query this log file into the Appian UI, and no other workable ways have really been presented to us.
I'm trying to read the contents of "design_errors.csv" (which appears to be a normally-formatted CSV file). I've tried readCSVLog(), readCSVLogPaging(), and readCSVLogPagingWithHeaders(); all of them fail to pull back any contents. They do receive the header column names from the CSV file, but return no rows of data. Any suggestions?
Since we've upgraded to 20.2 and / or deployed the latest version of this plug in, the System Logs record source no longer brings back any system logs to click on for further information.
I would suspect its the latest version of the plug in where the function systemlogsrecordtypesource or getloginfo requires the explicit relative path to find the logs ?
Testing in our non HA environments and the function works correctly, whereas in HA we are getting a null value datasubset.
Has anyone else found the same with a solution to workaround ?
Does this plugin has restriction in the logs it supports, I have recently tried to read sites.csv and users.csv and it always returns blank data. Any inputs will be helpful.
THe new version of this plugin works for multi-server installation on cloud. Please update the plugin notes accordingly
I missed to mention that we are in 20.2 version now.
I recently observed an issue that some of the logs doesn't read any data. I was trying to read user logs and it returns the following.
[logName=/usr/local/appian/ae/logs/data-metrics/users.csv, totalCount=-1, rows=, headers=Timestamp; Total Users; Active Users; Active System Administrators]
Hi erickp I also face this issue, did you find a solution for this?
Please send me the env details at email@example.com.
If open the same log through suite you can see the actual node name , please use that
Thanks for reply. That means it should work in distributed environment now. If i have node for example "abc", then for reading the file say appian_functions_details.csv in perflogs folder i tried giving readcsvlog("abc/perflogs/appian_functions_details.csv"), but it doesn't work. Can you please give exact input i need to give for my use case here, so that i have a better understanding of it.
