Debug topology synchronization
This page describes StackState version 4.1.
The StackState 4.1 version range is End of Life (EOL) and no longer supported. We encourage customers still running the 4.1 version range to upgrade to a more recent release.
When customizing a synchronization the result might not be as expected: this page explains several tools for debugging. For more info on individual synchronization concepts, see synchronization concepts.
If no components appear after making changes in a synchronization, or the data is not as expected, a good starting point is the synchronization main screen:
Based on the information you see here, different actions can be taken:
- If there are errors be sure to check the synchronization logs
- If there are no errors:
- Make sure you 'restarted' your synchronization in the synchronization screen and sentin new data, this is because StackState does not retroactively apply changes
- Make sure the components/relations you want synchronized has its type mapped in the synchronization configuration
StackState stores logs about synchronization in the folllowing places
This directory contains two log files for each synchronization.
- One of the form
exttopo.<DataSource Name>.log. This one contains information about identity extractionand the building of an external topology. This will show:
- If a relation is connected to a non-existing component.
- When the synchronization is slow it will discard messages
- When the idextractor has errors
- Another of the form
sync.<Synchronization Name>.log. This contains information aboutmapping, templates and merging. This will show:
- Errors in template/mapping functions
- Component types which have no mapping
