    How to use IONTEST to perform a Site Server ION program queue dump

    Issue
    Point of failures need to be eliminated when troubleshooting real-time-data issues. IONTest is a tool that allows for more in depth troubleshooting.

    Resolution
    As of ION Enterprise 5.6 Sevice Pack 2, a SiteServ feature has been added where you can use the IONtest.exe utility program to dump its program queues to a text file for inspection during troubleshooting.

    1. Run IONtest,from ……\system\bin folder and set your node to a device on the site you
    want to dump queues for, e.g.

    • IONtest.exe -mGroup1.Device1
    2. Execute the following program: 0x77777777 21 "dump all"

    Other possible values are:
    "dump one" - dump oneshot queue only. LogInserter polling programs are oneshots by default.
    "dump low" - dump low-frequency polled queue only. IONServices requests for real-time data are low-frequency polled by default.
    "dump medium" - dump medium-frequency polled queue only
    "dump high" - dump high-frequency polled queue only

    IONtest will return an error, however it has successfully created the dump file so this can be ignored:


    0x77777777 21 "dump all"
    #Sent at: Tue Jan 26 11:40:01.125 2010

    #Recv at: Tue Jan 26 11:40:02.562 2010
    {
    ExceptionType
    {
    9u
    "dump all"
    "Invalid object 0x77777777"
    }
    }

    3. The dump files are created in the …\config\Diagnostics folder. They are named dump__.txt.

    The dump files are human-readable: this dump shows all empty polled queues, and 2 oneshots in the queue from Vista to a BCPM and PM810.
    (In this example, the prog bytes are truncated for readability. In a real dump file, they will continue for several lines.)

    One thing to keep in mind is that this produces a snapshot of what's in the queue at the time of execution. If Diagnostics Viewer is showing 0 programs in the queues then you're unlikely to see anything (i.e. SiteServ processing is keeping up with the requests).
