Monitoring the Debugger

Monitoring the Debugger

When you run the Debugger, you can monitor the following information:
  • Session status.
    Monitor the status of the session.
  • Data movement.
    Monitor data as it moves through transformations.
  • Breakpoints.
    Monitor data that meets breakpoint conditions.
  • Target data.
    Monitor target data on a row-by-row basis.
The Mapping Designer displays windows and debug indicators that help you monitor the session:
  • Debug indicators.
    Debug indicators on transformations help you follow breakpoints and data flow.
  • Instance window.
    When the Debugger pauses, you can view transformation data and row information in the Instance window.
  • Target window.
    View target data for each target in the mapping.
  • Output window.
    The Integration Service writes messages to the following tabs in the Output window:
    • Debugger tab.
      The debug log displays in the Debugger tab.
    • Session Log tab.
      The session log displays in the Session Log tab.
    • Notifications tab.
      Displays messages from the Repository Service.
While you monitor the Debugger, you might want to change the transformation output data to see the effect on subsequent transformations or targets in the data flow. You might also want to edit or add more breakpoint information to monitor the session more closely.
