RP/TUX 8.0/TUX 8.1 - Enhancement request to include additional information in AUDITLOG (Doc ID 774199.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Tuxedo / Tuxedo / 8.0,8.1
Information in this document applies to any platform

Goal

As of Tuxedo 8.0, it is possible to analyze the flow of a transaction even when the transaction infects multiple Tuxedo
domains.  This can be done by activating the Domains AUDITLOG feature and observing the mapping of GTRIDs between the
local and remote transactions.  This feature, however, does not currently allow to fully analyze the transactions
until their completion.  That's because the messages pertaining to the commit protocol (prepare, commit, rollback) are
not recorded in the AUDITLOG.

A customer has experienced frequent problems with multi-domain transactions which reach the Prepared state in Oracle
(xa_prepare branch is OK), but the commit or rollback either does not arrive or arrives much later.  It is therefore
requested that the AUDITLOG information additionally includes the commit protocol messages (prepare, commit, rollback,
and their acknowledgements) with the GTRIDs involved.  This would allow a full analysis of problematic multi-domain
transactions.
