DataStage – Timestamp from Datetime

Timestamp from date is one of those data type conversions, which I occasionally have to do in DataStage but can never seem to remember. So, I thought I would write this quick post to document the data type conversion code, which is easy, once I finally remember how to do it again.  The TimestampFromDateTime Function I use the TimestampFromDateTime(%date%,%time%) function to do this data type conversion. I’m sure there are other ways to achieve the result, but I find this method clean and easy to perform. The TimestampFromDateTime(%date%,%time%) function is in the Functions > Date & Time menu. To populate

Infosphere Information Server (IIS) – Where you can view DataStage and QualityStage Logs?

During the course of the week, the discussion happened regarding the different places where a person might read the DataStage and QualityStage logs in InfoSphere. I hadn’t really thought about it, but here are a few places that come to mind: IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Operations Console IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Director client IBM InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage Designer client by pressing Ctrl+L Related Reference IBM Knowledge Center> InfoSphere Information Server 11.7.0 > InfoSphere DataStage and QualityStage > Monitoring jobs https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSZJPZ_11.3.0/com.ibm.swg.im.iis.ds.monitor.doc/topics/cont_dsqsmonitor.html IBM Knowledge Center > InfoSphere Information Server 11.7.0 > Installing > Troubleshooting software installation > Log files https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSZJPZ_11.7.0/com.ibm.swg.im.iis.productization.iisinfsv.install.doc/topics/ts_cont_logfiles.html

Essbase Connector Error – Client Commands are Currently Not Being Accepted

While investigating a recent Infosphere Information Server (IIS), Datastage, Essbase Connect error I found the explanations of the probable causes of the error not to be terribly meaningful.  So, now that I have run our error to ground, I thought it might be nice to jot down a quick note of the potential cause of the ‘Client Commands are Currently Not Being Accepted’ error, which I gleaned from the process. Error Message Id IIS-CONN-ESSBASE-01010 Error Message An error occurred while processing the request on the server. The error information is 1051544 (message on contacting or from application:[<<DateTimeStamp>>]Local////3544/Error(1013204) Client Commands are

What Are The DataStage / QualityStage Join Stages?

While chasing an error to which only applied to join type stages, I thought it might be nice to identify what the InfoSphere Information Server DataStage / QualityStage are.  There are three of them, as you can see from the picture above, which are the: Join Stage, Lookup Stage, And, Merge Stage. All three stages that join data based on the values of identified key columns.
