About this task
The Basic settings vertical tab of the Component view of the connection displays the schema of the data flow handled by the connection. You can change the schema by clicking the Edit schema button. For more information, see Setting a built-in schema in a Job.
The Advanced settings vertical tab lets you monitor the data flow over the connection in a Job without using a separate tFlowMeter component. The measured information will be interpreted and displayed in a monitoring tool such Talend Activity Monitoring Console (available with Talend subscription-based products). For information about Talend Activity Monitoring Console, see Talend Activity Monitoring Console User Guide.
To monitor the data over the connection, perform the following settings in the Advanced settings vertical tab:
- Select the Monitor this connection check box.
- From the Mode list, select Absolute to log the actual number of rows passes over the connection, or Relative to log the ratio (%) of the number of rows passed over this connection against a reference connection. If you select Relative, you need to select a reference connection from the Connections List list.
- Click the plus button to add a line in the Thresholds table and define a range of the number of rows to be logged.
For more information about flow metrics, see tFlowMeterCatcher and see Talend Activity Monitoring Console User Guide.
