    Migrate Indexes to newer version


    For EventLog Analyzer version 8.6 and above, you need to migrate older version indexes to newer version  for much faster and efficient log search performance, report generation and scheduling.

    You can migrate the indexes in two way

    Prerequisites:

    • You should run the EventLog Analyzer and MigrateIndex.bat/sh script as same user
    • Apply EventLog Analyzer 8.6 Service pack, start the product and then execute MigrateInde.bat/sh script

    Migrating indexes associated with the scheduled report

    If your indexes associated with the scheduled reports pertain to older version then this might return empty or partial report results. You need to migrate the indexes to newer version to resolve this issue. Follow the steps to migrate the indexes associated with the scheduled reports:

    1. Go to ~/EventLog Analyzer_HOME/TroubleShooting folder and run MigrateIndex.bat/sh utility script

    2. In the menu driven interface of the script, select option 1 to migrate the indexes associated to the scheduled reports

    3. You'll now be notified with the disk space needed for migration and the expected time to complete the migration

    4. If you have the required disk space, proceed by typing 'yes'

    Migrating indexes belonging to custom date range

    Index migration can also be carried out by specifying particular date range to which the indexes belong. Follow the steps below, to migrate indexes belonging to custom date range:

    1. Go to ~/EventLog Analyzer_HOME/TroubleShooting folder and run MigrateIndex.bat/sh script

    2. Type option 2 to migrate indexes belonging to custom date range

    3. You will be now displayed with the available date ranges

    4. Type the start date and end date to start the migration

    5. Before the migration progress starts, you will be notified with the disk space required and expected time of migration. Make sure that you have the required disk space and start the migration by typing 'yes'

    The migration once started, will be completed within the time range. Do not intervene during the migration process, there are high chances of data loss if you abort migration.
