When executing a Job, Talend Studio allows you to collect key runtime execution information, statistics, logs and volumetrics, for tracking and analysis through the tStatCatcher Statistics option or through using a log component.

Examples include monitoring how often a Job is executed, how long it takes to run, how many records are processed, whether it completes successfully, what is the reason it fails, etc.

The statistics, logs and volumetrics data can be written out to the Java console, delimited files and database tables, or any combination of the three. If the data is stored in delimited files or database tables, it is written to three separate files or tables based on the configuration as described in the following procedure.


  1. Click on the toolbar of the Studio main window or click File > Edit Project Properties from the menu bar to open the Project Settings dialog box.
  2. In the tree view of the dialog box, expand the Job Settings node and click Stats & Logs to open the corresponding view.
    Note: The Stats & Logs preferences can be set for all Jobs in a project via Project Settings if the preferences for Stats & Logs will not change depending upon the context of execution. It can also be set separately for individual Jobs via the Stats & Logs view on the Job tab. For more information, see Automating the use of statistics & logs.
  3. Specify the type of the log information you want to capture by selecting the Use statistics (tStatCatcher), Use logs (tLogCatcher) and/or Use volumetrics (tFlowMeterCatcher) check boxes where relevant.
    • When the Use statistics (tStatCatcher) check box is selected, the key information such as the Job start time, end time, duration, and success or failure status is captured. If the Catch components statistics (tStatCatcher Statistics) check box is selected, or if the tStatCatcher Statistics check box on the Advanced settings view of a specific component is selected, the key information for the component is also captured.
    • When the Use logs (tLogCatcher) check box is selected, messages are harvested from Java Exception and the tWarn and tDie components.
    • When the Use volumetrics (tFlowMeterCatcher) check box is selected, the row counts from all tFlowMeter components in a Job is captured.
  4. Select the On Console check box to display the data in the console if needed.
  5. Select the On Files and/or On Database check boxes for the storage of the log data if needed.

    The relevant fields are enabled or disabled according to your settings. Specify the name of the delimited files, the value of the database connection parameters and the name of the database tables in the corresponding fields according to the type of the log information and the storage of the log data you select.

    Warning: Stats or logs is not supported with JDBC generic component for Teradata. To store statistics and log data in a Teradata database, select Teradata from the Db Type drop-down list and provide related parameters for connecting the Teradata database as prompted.
