Using the AREntryCounter utility

Use the AREntryCounter utility to estimate total data size and delta data migration run time. The AREntryCounter utility allows you to get the number of entries in the forms that are part of the Delta Data Migration (DDM) package. The utility can be run in the following ways:

  • Before DDM: Run the utility to get counts for all the forms for the date for which you want to run the DDM. These counts give you an idea of the total amount of data you have in your forms and how long DDM might take to migrate that data.
  • After DDM: Run the utility to get the total counts for all the forms that DDM used. You can run the utility separately for your source and destination servers and compare the counts.

The following table describes the available options:

Option and valueDefinition

-d <DDM date>

Count entries that were created or modified after a specific date 

The <DDM date> format is as follows: 

mm/dd/yy hh:mm:ss 

For example: 

06/14/12 11:57:29 

-k <package>

Construct the form list from the given BMC Remedy Migrator package file

-o <output file>

The output file for the result report

-p <password>

The password for authenticating with the AR System server

-s <server>

The AR System server name

-u <user>

The user name for authenticating with the AR System server

-x <port>

The AR System server port

Use the command prompt to run the utility from the \DeltaDataMigration\Utilities\migratorutilities directory. You must run the counts for each product. The output file is available in the same folder from which you ran the Delta Data Migration Tool.

Use the following syntax to run the utility for your package files (forms). Ensure that you replace the keywords with your BMC Remedy Migrator installation path and the server and version information.
