IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreSQL

IndigoSqlClient

UPDATE: The IndigoSqlClient has been replaced in Indigo 5.1.2 by the SQL Logger Plugin, which provides additional functionality and several improvements. This forum thread has been locked, so please post any questions about the SQL Logger Plugin in a new thread.

Note that the old IndigoSqlClient client will be removed by the installer, and the old database format (table names and rows defined in the tables) is [b]not compatible[b] with the new plugin. If you are using the old IndigoSqlClient then please read over the documentation on the new plugin so you can make adjustments to your scripts/SQL to be compatible with the new plugin.


PREVIOUS DETAILS ON DEPRECATED INDIGOSQLCLIENT:

The IndigoSqlClient can be used to efficiently save Indigo Device state changes, Variable value changes, and Event Log messages to either a SQLite database or a PostgreSQL database. IndigoSqlClient is a seperate process that Indigo Server can automatically launch (and terminate) that hooks into all device state and variable value change messages from the Indigo Server. This allows Indigo to integrate with other applications or systems, and allows for historical data tracking. You can, for example, use PHP to dynamically generate graphs or charts of device states (like temperature) stored in a PostgreSQL database.

By default, OS X 10.5 and higher includes the libraries needed to use SQLite, which makes configuring SQLite simple.

Although more complicated, we have also put together basic instructions for users needing to use PostgreSQL.

Matt,
what about Mac OS 10.4? How can I activate SQLite for Mac OS 10.4?

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

You will have to install python version 2.5 or greater for SQLite support on OS X 10.4. I've never done that, so I don't have step-by-step instructions. You might just want to try PostgreSQL if you are running 10.4. I have gotten that working before.

Regards,
Matt

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

Has anyone succeeded in getting IndigoSqlClient to work under OSX 10.4?

I have installed Python 2.7.1 which includes SQLite3, but get the following error recorded in the log:

Jan 21, 2011 10:59:06 AM

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

The default python (/usr/bin/python) is probably still getting started. Try setting the $PATH variable in your .profile to point to the new python command. (you'll probably have to logout/back in for it to take effect)

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

Jay,
Here is my .bash_profile:

# Setting PATH for Python 2.7
# The orginal version is saved in .bash_profile.pysave
PATH="/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin:${PATH}"
export PATH

It was installed yesterday and the computer restarted twice since then.
When I start python from my home directory, this is what I see:

Hanks-Computer:~ henrywalters$ python
Python 2.7.1 (r271:86882M, Nov 30 2010, 09:39:13)
[GCC 4.0.1 (Apple Inc. build 5494)] on darwin
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>>help()

The sqlite3 module(s) seem to be present:

help> modules sqlite3
Here is a list of matching modules. Enter any module name to get more help.
sqlite3
sqlite3.dbapi2
sqlite3.dump
sqlite3.test
sqlite3.test.dbapi
sqlite3.test.dump
sqlite3.test.factory
sqlite3.test.hooks
sqlite3.test.py25tests
sqlite3.test.regression
sqlite3.test.transactions
sqlite3.test.types
sqlite3.test.userfunctions
_sqlite3

help>

Thanks,
Hank

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

So, apparently IndigoServer is running before the user's default shell is run (thus setting the new path). The only other thing I can think of is to link /usr/bin/python to the one at /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/ (be sure and keep the old /usr/bin/python in case linking doesn't work out). The only trick, of course, is if something else on your system requires the older version of python it might break. YMMV.

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

Jay,

Thanks for taking the time to work this issue.

I tried the obvious, and disabled "Open at login" for Indigo, then restarted the computer. "python" and "sqlite3" in my /usr/bin/ directory both link to the new version of python I installed recently. Then I started Indigo server, but got the same error message about being unable to load the python sql module. I also tried using python 2.5 and got the same results.

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

Open a terminal window and type in the following command:

Code: Select all
ps -axwww | grep Python


and paste the results into a reply.

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

I tried it again with lower case for python with the following result:

Hanks-Computer:~ henrywalters$ ps -axwww | grep python

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

Try changing the first line of the IndigoSqlClient.py file to:

Code: Select all
#!/usr/bin/python


and restart the server.

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

No luck!

The line WAS #! usr/bin/env Python
now reads #! usr/bin/python

I logged out and shut the computer down, then restarted and got the following log file:

Re: IndigoSqlClient -- logging changes to SQLite or PostgreS

After your edit to the top of the IndigoSqlClient.py file, what does this return from the Terminal (after Indigo starts):

Code: Select all
ps -axwww | grep python
