Monitor Job and Transformation Results

You can view remotely executed and scheduled job and transformation details, including the date and time that they were run, and their status and results, through the PDI Status page. To view it, navigate to the /pentaho/kettle/status page on your Pentaho Server (change the host name and port to match your configuration):

http://localhost:8080/pentaho/kettle/status

You must be logged in to ensure you are redirected to the login page.

You can get to a similar page in Spoon by using the Monitor function of a slave server. This page clears when the server is restarted, or at the interval specified by the object_timeout_minutes setting. 

On Carte

Any action done through the Carte server embedded in the Pentaho Server is controlled through the /pentaho/server/pentaho-server/pentaho-solutions/system/kettle/slave-server-config.xml file. Notice the Configuration details table at the bottom of the screen. This shows the three configurable settings for schedule and remote execution logging.

To make modifications to slave-server-config.xml, you must stop the Pentaho Server.

The three configurable options in the slave-server-config.xml file are explained in the following table:

Property Values Description
max_log_lines Any value of 0 (zero) or greater. 0 indicates that there is no limit. Truncates the execution log when it goes beyond this many lines.
max_log_timeout_minutes Any value of 0 (zero) or greater. 0 indicates that there is no timeout. Removes lines from each log entry if it is older than this many minutes.
object_timeout_minutes Any value of 0 (zero) or greater. 0 indicates that there is no timeout. Removes entries from the list if they are older than this many minutes.

The following code block is an example of the slave-server-config.xml file:

<slave_config>
  <max_log_lines>0</max_log_lines>
  <max_log_timeout_minutes>0</max_log_timeout_minutes>
  <object_timeout_minutes>0</object_timeout_minutes>
</slave_config>
