Smart PDF Exporter - Failed to capture the page within the allocated time

Hi,

I'm trying to export pdf dashboards.
Thank's smartexporter can do this on demand (The export when I click on the button is good).
Splunk is installed on RedHat 7.4

Therefore, when rtying pour add a cron to this export, I got the following error :

2019-05-02 14:31:01,476 INFO temporary js file /tmp/tmpXN7wqi

  File "/data/splunk/etc/apps/smart_exporter_app/bin/smartexporter.py", line 84, in __die
    raise RuntimeError(str(fmsg))
RuntimeError: Failed to capture the page within the allocated time

Phantomjs is installed, as well as Fontconfig.

I check actually how to verify if GLIBCXX_3.4.9 AND GLIBC_2.7 are installed.

Have you encountered this problem, have you got any idea ?

Thank's.

Olivier.

Hi @o.calmels,

I went through the smartexporter.py script and this is the section generating your error :

    while task.poll() is None and timeout_rem > 0:
        time.sleep(1)
        timeout_rem -= 1
    if timeout_rem < 1:
        task.terminate()
        self.__die('Failed to capture the page within the allocated time')

It's using a default timeout of 600 seconds timeout_rem = 600. Could it be that your dashboard is slow to load ? taking more than 600 seconds ? You could try to increase this timeout_rem parameter to 1200 on line 137 and see if it fixes anything.

Cheers,
David

Hi @DavidHourani, My dashboard is ready within a couple of second (10s max). Ieven tried to enlarge this timer with no result. Thank's.
It seams like phantomjs do not detect the end of page load.
