After you click Run, a new ETL process is launched on your development workstation. This process has all the characteristics of an ETL task, except that it does not upload any data to TrueSight Capacity Optimization.
During the run, the ETL Console pane (bottom right) shows all error messages and logs produced by the ETL. These messages are also saved in the
/log folder of your project.
After a debug run is complete, BMC recommends that you complete the following tasks:
/outputfolder of your project to view the data produced by the ETL.
This folder contains a dataset ID file (for example,
MyExtractorE_datasetid) for each dataset that the module has produced. This file contains a simple comma-separated value representation of the dataset. You can view it in the Edit area to verify that the output contains the right data, metrics, and timestamps. This data is exactly what the module will upload into TrueSight Capacity Optimization when used in a real ETL.
The run configuration used in the development environment is a subset of the run configuration that is available when the ETL is active in production. For example, in the development environment, you can only choose a single local file to parse, while in production you can browse to an FTP folder and even search its sub-folders to extract files.
