BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Hi Guys

 

We are running on BAC 7.55 on windows 2003 R2 . We are facing some issues with the Scheduled Reports , Some of the Scheduled reports are not being sent , However i am able to manually generate the reports from User Reports and i can also email it from there

 

This is not problem with Reporting or the email server  , Not sure what logs needs to be checked for the scheduling issue and how to fix it

 

Kidnly assist

 

Regards

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Hi,

 

I have noticed this issue with BAC 7.02.

Are you sending multiple reports almost at the same time, I have noticed this happen in this scenario.

 

If you could stagger the reports for different time periods keeping a small time interval in between, probably you wll notice better results.

 

Regards,

Parag

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Can you check if there's some Security implied at Mail server that's classifing these details as SPAM? Also, what does Topaz.ejb.all.log says?

 

Also, do you see any challenges in BAC alerts getting triggered or it's an issue just with Reports?

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Hi Parag

 

We more than 1000 scheduled reports , and the schedules are running throughout differrent times

 

Uzair

There are no issues with the Alerts , Problem is only with the Scheduled reports and not all  around 5 to 6

 

I will have to look for the Logs , Let me check and update

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Validate the following as well.

 

1. Check if any Monitors are getting skipped [This generally happens for low iteration time]?

2. Web Server

3. Memory allocation to JAVA & JMX monitors could be another reason

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Also, what's the total count of monitors configured on Sitescope? It's advisible not to go beyond 6k monitors on 1 Sitescope server

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Has SiteScope monitors to do anything with the Scheduled BAC reports ?

 

We have around 33 Sitescope servers and have 65K monitors

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

I have exactly the same issue. Can email manually, just not scheduled.

 

From what I have gathered, in my case it amounts to two errors. One, BSM is unable to create folders within:

HPBSM\AppServer\webapps\site.war\Imgs\chartTemp\offline

 

LOG:

ERROR - fail to create offline request 1
java.io.FileNotFoundException: E:\HPBSM\AppServer\webapps\site.war\Imgs\chartTemp\offline\Report_Medium Demand BALIN_LAB -18\01\2013 015708 PM.pdf (The system cannot find the path specified)

 

I can manually create the folders it asks for, fixing the above error and clearing it from the logs (but still not capable of creating the folders automatically, however; it wont send it due to the fllowing error:

 

1 [http-0.0.0.0-8080-1] (EmailServlet.java:113) ERROR - failed to send email no html stream found.Expected for:E:\HPBSM\AppServer/webapps/site.war\Imgs\chartTemp\offline\2013 021049 PM.pdf

 

This error appears every time it tries to email a report,  even if the folder exists and the report is generated correctly.

 

It doesn't seem to be about permissions because BSM can already write to those folders.

 

Hopefully we can fix this issue, thanks in advance.

Rafael,

 

Did you ever get your BSM email report issue resolved?

 

Thanks,

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Hi Rafael,

 

from looking at the log snippets, I wonder if you chose the report names as

 "Report_Medium Demand BALIN_LAB -18\01\2013 015708 PM.pdf"

 

If yes, change the name to remove the space in it, and also remove all slashes in the name, for example to

"Report_Medium_Demand_BALIN_LAB_-18_01_2013_015708_PM.pdf"

 

We have an issue on BSM 9.21 or 9.22 where reports failed to be send when the report name contains space.

While the underlying reason might be a totally different one, it might be worth to give it a try.

Same for slashes in the report name. As BAC needs to access the file system, it's not a good practice (or even might be unsupported) to use this character in the name.

I checked the BAC 7.0 ReferenceInformation manual (this is the latest one which contains such information), and there one case read the slashes are not in the list of special characters allowed, while space are.

Re: BAC Scheduled reports are not being sent

Hi Rafael,

 

assuming that you are using BSM 9.21 or before, the issue is a known one

(see my reply at http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Application-Perf-Mgmt-BAC-BSM/Scheduled-Reports-Email-are-not-getting-send-HP-BSM/m-p/6130743/highlight/false)

 

This issue is actually known problem


 Scheduled reports defect : date converted to a string (it includes backslashes which converted to directories)
 => QCCR1I79528 In some locales scheduled reports are not sent due to improper conversion of date strings.

 

As dates are converted to use backslashes, Windows uses them as directory separator, and thus fails to find the file.

 

The problem is fixed in BSM 9.22, there is no patch for BSM 9.21, so your only option is to upgrade to 9.22

 

This however wouldn't apply to Bilal's original post, as he's running BAC 7.55
