Newly Installed BF Crashes


#1

I downloaded a trial version and installed it. But when I try to run a test it always crashes. The status message shows it crashes at “Create objects for TPC-C/Checking for existing objects”.

I tried to uninstall and re-install. But it did not help.

Does anyone have an idea what is wrong?

Thanks!

When you run BMF it will need to create a set of database objects (tables and indexes) to house the data for the transactions required. Basically it constructs and loads a sample application of objects and data then runs predefined transactions against that. So your login account to the database must have the necessary privs to perform those actions, the database must have sufficient space for your chosen scale factor, and you should check the option to drop the objects before creating them so that you don’t get errors that object already exists.

Thanks for your reply. But these are not my problems as I just tried to use another target database. The user I am using has DBA role and I have a lot of space in the database.
By the way, both my targets are Oracle. One 11.1.0.7 and the other 10.2.0.3.

Not to sound adversarial, but I use BMF with Oracle 10g and 11g weekly. I simply enter my connection info, create my project and then say run. The only time I’ve ever gotten any problems (that show up in BMF) - they were always spfile or init.ora parameters not configured for the workload I chose. BMF simply creates tables and plays selects, inserts, updates and deletes against the database. It’s pretty simple - there is very little to go wrong. So my suggestion is to contact tech support at this point.

I agree with you. It really should be very simple. Hard thing is I can’t find any log/trace file about the crash, so no way to diagnose it.
Thanks for your reply.

There should be a log file under the BMF install directory and/or the users’ my docs bmf directory - it’s pretty easy to spot and is a simple text file. See if you can find that - and if so please send it on and I’ll take a look at it :slight_smile:

Ah I found the log files. They are under My Doc directory. Let me paste the contents here:
