Troubleshooting issues with importing data

The following table describes the troubleshooting tips that you can use to resolve issues that you might face when importing data.

Error or issueApplies to the Pentaho package forDescription or procedure
Viewing logs of the import jobsAllLog files are created in the folder where you have saved the KJB files. Success and failure rows files are also created in the same folder. If a failure occurs, the error code and its description are provided in the failure row file. You can also use the failure row file to import data to Salesforce.
Not all records are importedAllDelete the delta time stamp file of the job that you ran, and run the job again.
An "out of memory" error occursAll

While importing a large number of records, if you get the OutofMemoryError or Java heap size error, increase the heap size in the Spoon.bat file.

  1. Go to the \pdi-ce-4.x.0-stable\data-integration or pdi-ce-5.0.1.A-stable\data-integration folder.
  2. Right-click the Spoon.bat file, and select Edit.
  3. Locate the following line and replace 512 with a higher value:
    If "%PENTAHO_DI_JAVA_OPTIONS%"=="" set PENTAHO_DI_JAVA_OPTIONS="-Xmx512m" "-XX:MaxPermSize=256m"
  4. Click Save.
  5. Relaunch the Spoon.bat file and rerun the job file.
A "too many script statements" error occursAllWhen you run an import, if you receive "Too many script statements" as an onscreen Apex error message or in an email, reduce the batch size by 10 in the Batch Size field in the Settings section on the Salesforce Upsert window.
Importing data by using the failure rows file
  • BMC BladeLogic Client Automation 
  • Dell KACE
  • Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager
  • LDAP server

A failure row file is a text file that is saved in the folder where you have saved your KJB files. Perform the necessary steps to remove the error provided for the failure rows in the failure rows file, and then import the data by using the following steps.

The following Pentaho packages provide a sample job file in the FailureRowsInput folder. You can use this sample job file as a base to create transformation files for importing data from the failure rows file to the Salesforce organization.

In the following steps, it is assumed that you are using the sample KTR file provided by BMC.

To import data from the failure rows file

  1. Double-click Failure file input for <CI type name>.
  2. In the Selected files field, enter the failure file name location and click OK.
  3. Copy the Upsert into class <CI type name> step from the appropriate KTR file and paste it into the transformation file that you have created to import data from the failure rows file.
    For example, if you are importing data for the operating system CI type, copy the Upsert into class operating system step from the KTR file for operating system.
  4. Click Run.
