I just released a 0.8.0.1 version of the reporting module. It actually is a bug-fix, because it appeared there was an issue running the query based tables (thanks Vincenzo, Hunter and Greg for taking the effort of leaving feedback in this blog, or issuing a ticket @ Google Code!). In order to make the progress of harvesting more visible, this new version provides you with an admin page in Alfresco Share. The page shows you the list of tables, and the number of rows harvested per table.
In this admin page you can see for each table that is being harvested:
- the current status (Running or Done)
- the timestamp the harvesting action has run successfully for the last time
- the total number of rows
- the number of items being ‘isLatest’
- the number of items being non-latest
- the number of items in the Workspace
- the number of items in the Archivespace (e.g. deleted)
Here you can find a screencam of the panel-in-action. A fresh Alfresco with an empty reporting database will be filled, and the Admin panel will show the actual status of the reporting database…
Personally I doubt if the last two columns will survive over time. The #workspace column is not entirely true. I don’t update the SpaceStore if a version of a document is moved to the VersionStore… And the #archive column should not be true. it does not take into account objects that are actually removed from the archive store. Hopefully, at one point in time, the deleted items do get removed. The reporting toll will not notice. As far as I can see right now, these two columns will be dropped. Drop me a note if you think they do make sense.
