Agents for PeopleSoft Enterprise detects old events

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

The ITCAM for Applications Agents for PeopleSoft Enterprise read previously processed events from logs when they are restarted.

Symptom

Whenever a PeopleSoft Enterprise agent (P8, P9) is restarted, previous log entries are read from the beginning of the log and give the impression that a new event has been received.

The following situations are known to be affected by this issue
KP8_Agent_Log_Crit
KP9_Agent_Log_Crit
KP9_Run_Stat_No_Success
KP9_Run_Stat_Error

Cause

The cause has been traced to a value in the agent's .ref file.


The problem is in the line
"//SOURCE FILE '${CTIRA_LOG_PATH}/kp8_${KP8_INSTANCE_NAME}_trace.log'
TAILRESTARTFROMTOP ManagedSystemName=KP8_data_provider_log.txt"


Resolving the problem

The following work around will correct this issue.


1) Stop the agent exhibiting the issue.

2) Open the kp8.ref and / or kp9.ref files for editing.

Files are located in:
[candlehome]/lx8266/p8/bin/
[candlehome]/lx8266/p9/bin/

3) Edit the files to read TAIL instead of TAILRESTARTFROMTOP.

Change the line:
"//SOURCE FILE '${CTIRA_LOG_PATH}/kp8_${KP8_INSTANCE_NAME}_trace.log'
TAILRESTARTFROMTOP ManagedSystemName=KP8_data_provider_log.txt"

to read:
"//SOURCE FILE '${CTIRA_LOG_PATH}/kp8_${KP8_INSTANCE_NAME}_trace.log'
TAIL ManagedSystemName=KP8_data_provider_log.txt"

4) Start the agents
