Collgui doesn't start. .

Have run collect for the first time, and saved the.cgz file in /tmp/collectdata/xx. System is 5.1Bpk4: setld'd Collgui from the Associated Products CD: Java rte 1.3.1-2 and Perl are installed, but launching "collgui -d /tmp/collectdata/collect0210.cgz" results in
"Starting init()
Finished UIcreate()
Collect command: yada-yada for six lines, then:
Leaving syncWithDataFile().
MainFrame.fireSummaryCgaged() - Called.
this last line is repeated 27/28 times then it goes no further. Any ideas,please, anyone?
Thanks,
pj

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

Have you tried starting collgui without any parameters? You then can load the collected file. I prefer to analyze the output using text console (collect -p) of filter the data using cfilt.

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

Thanks for the fast response Ivan: I just ran it as you suggest, and a ps ef|grep Collgui shows it - and java as running, with what look to be correct, logical paths shown, but there's no output. I don't exctly know what to expect: a Netscape look-alike browser screen? or something like SysMan Station?

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

It should open a sysman like interface. Ensure that your DISPLAY variable is correctly set.

DISPLAY=localhost:0.0;export DISPLAY

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

V5.1B-3 has some fixes for collect, and possibly for Java too. If you can, try it under V5.1B-3 and see if anything changes.

Hope this helps

Hello, I guess you are running collgui from local system, if that is the case it is not required to set the DISPLAY.

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

Can you post the o/p of "collgui -V"?

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

Hi guys: Vesion 3.0 (build 12) - OSF1 V5.1 is the output. I'm running cygwin from an XP Pro desktop: and sorry - I should have said - it is B3.

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

Why not use exceed? That would let you export the display.
By the way, cygwin will not let you export unless you get the computer name from your pc..
Go to MyComputer
Right click
Properties
Computer Name Tab
Copy and paste your computer name.

Go to cygwin
export DISPLAY=computername:0.
collgui &

This should do it.

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

On my machine,
# collgui -d
Starting init().
Finished UIcreate().
MainFrame.fireSessionChaged() - Called
Inside syncWithDataFile(): null
Leaving syncWithDataFile().
MainFrame.fireChartChaged() - Called.
MainFrame.fireSummaryChaged() - Called.
MainFrame.fireSummaryChaged() - Called.
.
.
.

(and the GUI comes up)

So, the problem should be the DISPLAY not collgui.

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

Hi BL: Yes - this is exactly what I get - but no display. I've been running Cygwin full screen from my d/t, and - as mentioned by others above - I've reset and reset the DISPLAY variable to my box a number of ways, but it always errors out. localhost:0.0 it always starts the way yours does - I just do't get the pretty pictures. I haven't tried this from the console yet - and will later on today. I believe you're right - it IS a DISPLAY issue, as I'm also not the brightest star in managing this system.
(PS - Exceed is nearly U$600!)

Thanks all for your suggestions. I will let you know how it proceeds, but if the console is the same - I will take it up with HP, rather than waste more of your time, on what should be something quite trivial. This is not like "how do I split a cluster"!

Re: Collgui doesn't start. .

FWIW, I used collect/collgui via cygwin all the time and it works great for me. Can you at least run something like xclock? If not, fix your X.
