Enable purging. Keep in mind that the minimum retention period for data is 2 days. Refer, Purging Analytics Data.

When you are in a production environment, be sure to configure data purging for your analytics server before using analytics. Otherwise, too much data will get accumulated in the analytics server over time and cause performance issues.


Before you begin,

  1. Install Oracle Java SE Development Kit (JDK) version 1.8.* and set the JAVA_HOME environment variable.
  2. Download the WSO2 EI ZIP file from here, and then extract the ZIP file. 
    The path to this folder will be referred to as <EI_HOME> throughout this tutorial.
  3. Download the MSF4J service from here and copy the JAR file to the <EI_HOME>/wso2/msf4j/deployment/microservices folder. The back-end service is now deployed in the MSF4J profile of WSO2 EI.
  4. Select and download the relevant EI tooling ZIP file based on your operating system from here and then extract the ZIP file.
    The path to this folder will be referred to as <EI_TOOLING> throughout this tutorial.

  5. Open the EI Tooling environment and click File -> Import. Then, select Existing WSO2 Projects into workspace under the WSO2 category, click Next and upload the extracted pre-packaged C-App project. This C-App contains the configurations of the service chaining tutorial. On the Servers tab, right-click the WSO2 EI server, select Add and Remove and choose SampleServicesCompositeApplication, and click Finish.

  6. If you are running on Windows, download the snappy-java_1.1.1.7.jar from here and copy the JAR file to <EI_HOME>\lib directory.
  7. Purge data that is old and retain data that needs analysis.
