Omnidex Debugging

Omnidex supports a sophisticated debugging system that can aid in checking for application issues.

The following variables can be set to enable debugging, prior to starting an application. For client/server applications, set these variables prior to starting the Omnidex Network Services listener to enable debugging on that listener. The required variables (above) must also be set.

OMNIDEX_DEBUG

OMNIDEX_DEBUG enables debugging. The settings must be quoted and multuple settings must be comma separated. Debugging information is output to odxdebug.log by default. Use the FILE=filename setting or the OMNIDEX_DEBUG_FILE environment variable to override this default.

Following is a list of valid settings:

ON | OFF - Off by default. Enables general debugging for oa routines.

DATABASE - Provides additional debugging information pertaining to the database interaction.

FILESYSTEM - Provides additional debugging information pertaining to issues with files or the filesystem.

OPTIMIZER - Provides additional debugging information pertaining to the optimizer.

QUALIFY - Provides additional debugging information pertaining to oaqualify and the QUALIFY command.

SELECT - Provides additional debugging information pertaining to oaselect and the SELECT command.

UPDATE - Provides additional debugging information pertaining to oaupdate and the UPDATE command.

CONNECT - Provides additional debugging information pertaining to oaconnect and the CONNECT command.

KERNEL - Provides additional debugging information pertaining problems with the Omnidex Kernel.

FILE=filename - Writes the debug output to the specified filename. Default output goes to odxdebug.log. Can also override the output destination with the OMNIDEX_DEBUG_FILE environment variable.

EXCEPTIONS - Locate an error in a long complex sequence of steps. Outputs the exception and the sequence of steps leading up to the exception.

ALL - Output ALL debug information for ALL of the above profiles. CAUTION: The output will be very large. Use this option ONLY if you really need it!

Unix
export OMNIDEX_DEBUG="ON"
Windows
set OMNIDEX_DEBUG="DATABASE,FILE=c:\omnidex\log\debug.txt"

OMNIDEX_DEBUG_FILE

OMNIDEX_DEBUG_FILE outputs debugging details to the specified file. Used in conjunction with OMNIDEX_DEBUG. If not set, debug messages will be output to odxdebug.log on the server. The output file can also be set using the FILE=filename option of OMNIDEX_DEBUG.

Unix
export OMNIDEX_DEBUG="SELECT"
export OMNIDEX_DEBUG_FILE="odxdebug.log"
Windows
set OMNIDEX_DEBUG="DATABASE,FILESYSTEM"
set OMNIDEX_DEBUG_FILE="odxdebug.log"
