Viewing Database Tracer results in Excel

The Database Tracer gadget produces a text file containing the SQL statements, rule cache hit statistics, timings, and other data that reflect your requestor session's interactions with the Pega Platform database or other relational databases. You can export this file to Microsoft Excel to view the results.

  1. Click the red square to end tracing and close the text file.
  2. Click the download icon to save the text file on your workstation or a shared drive.
  3. Open a new Excel worksheet.
  4. Within Excel, click File > Open. Ensure that the file type is set to "Text Files" and then navigate to the saved text file. Excel automatically determines that the file is delimited; respond to prompts by selecting the "tab" delimiter type and desired column format. Results from the text file are formatted and imported to the worksheet.
