Announcement RTx::Statistics 0.1.7 available (was RE: blank pages after statistics install)

OK,
I’ve put in the changes from Les, Todd and Stephen, I’ve test it with a queue named “test(paren)”, and it seems to work.

Hopefully this will fix those folks that are seeing the blank pages.

Download from the usual place.

DAMN. I renamed the file but forgot to rename the variable.

OK, well, no promises, but I’ll try to get out a 0.1.7 with this change
in the next few days…

It’s probably because component
html/RTx/Statistics/Elements/StatColumnMap
which declares global $COLUMN_MAP, thus clobbering
the one RT declares.

Whoever the author is needs to give it a unique name.

Been there, done that…

So if it works, it’s a Christmas present;
And if it doesn’t you can blame it on the Egg Nog?

In this case “It” is Jifty, our new Web application framework,
complete

with automatic database setup and upgrade support, a clean new
syntax

for model class definitions, AJAX support (with equivalent
functionality

for non-AJAX browsers), support for continuations-based web
programming

and a built in database admin UI.

We’re using it for a “new thing” that’s not quite ready for release
yet,

but when I tried to create the second application (a wiki), it took
me

about two hours (and less than 100loc) to go from 0 to Wiki. We’ve
since refined things quite a bit. I’m pretty sure I could build the
same

thing on stage in < 10 minutes and 20 loc. :wink:

Oh, and it comes with a pony.

Kelly, I just installed this on my test server. every time I click on
ticket trends by day RT crashes.
I did remove the mason_data/obj directory and then restarted apache.

Rob, are there any errors anywhere? When you say RT crashes, do you
mean that the http server itself is going down? Or An RT process in it?
Does the browser show anything?
This page is working fine in my test setup…

The 0.1.7 version has corrected the blank page problem for me. Thanks
for the quick fix!

I am not experiencing the crashing problem with Ticket Trends by Day
that Rob Wilson pointed out. However, the data presented by that page
is incorrect. According to that page, the number of tickets created is
less than the number of tickets resolved – which is obviously wrong,
unless I am misunderstanding the basic premise of the page. As a
point of comparison, the Time To Resolve page does correctly show the
number of created tickets as equal to or larger than the number of resolved
tickets. My guess is that the algorithm for calculating the number of
tickets created is wrong on the Trends page, but I haven’t yet looked at
the code to verify that.

Also, the Multiple Queues page produces incorrect results when a status
of new or open is selected. As best as I can tell, it is showing the
total number of tickets processed through the selected queue (since the
creation of the queue) instead of the number of new/open tickets on a
specific day. Selecting a stalled/resolved/rejected/deleted status
produces the correct results.

I found the problem. The logic for determining whether a ticket should be
counted as deleted or created was wrong. Here is a context patch to
correct the code:
