Enabling ODBC Logs on Linux or Solaris


Explains what the feature is or what its benefits are to the user or customer.


If you need more information in order to troubleshoot ODBC connections, you can enable logging for ODBC. To do this on Linux or Solaris, follow these instructions.

To enable ODBC logs:

  1. Navigate to the directory where you installed ODBC.
  2. Open the file odbc.ini in a text editor.
  3. Find the settings LogLevel and LogPath in the file, and uncomment them by removing the "#" at the beginning of each line.
  4. Edit the value for each of the logging properties:
    • For LogLevel, enter a number from 1 to 6 (with 6 being the most verbose).
    • For LogPath, enter the fully qualified path where you want the log to be written.
    Example for Linux 64-bit:
    Description         = ThoughtSpot 64-bit ODBC Driver
    Driver              = ThoughtSpot(x64)
    ServerList          = 12345
    Locale              = en-US
    ErrorMessagesPath   = /usr/local/scaligent/toolchain/local/simba/odbc/linux/ErrorMessages
    UseSsl              = 0
    #SSLCertFile        =   # Set the SSL certificate file path. The certificate file can be obtained by extracting the SDK tarball
    #LogLevel           = 3 # Set log level to enable debug logging
    #LogPath            = /usr/local/scaligent/toolchain/local/simba/odbc/linux/Logs  # Set the debug log files path
  5. Run the ODBC load, and send the log file to ThoughtSpot Support.
