    The System Tests & Monitor page (Primo Home > Primo Utilities > System Tests & Monitor) allows you to access the test tools, which are used to test DEDUP and FRBR records.
    System Tests and Monitor Page
    For on-premises installations, the System Tests & Monitor page also allows you to access the test tools, which are used to test File Splitter plug-ins and RTA plug-ins.

    The Test File Splitters Tool

    The Test File Splitters tool allows on-premises customers to test file splitters before assigning them to a data source. For information on using file splitters, see Configuring Data Sources.
    If you would like to create your own file splitters, see the Primo documentation on the El Commons Web site.
    To test a file splitter:
    1. Click Test File Splitters on the System Tests & Monitor page.
      The Test File Splitters page opens.
      Test File Splitters Page
    2. Use the following table to fill in the fields on the page:
      Test File Splitters Details
      Field Description
      Owner
      Select the configuration level.
      For installation-level staff users, select the installation name or a specific institution from the drop-down list. The valid values are Installation (if using the default name) or a specific institution.
      For institution-level staff users, this field is set to your institution.
      File Splitter
      Select a file splitter to test from the drop-down list. If the file splitter does not appear, check to see that is defined in the File Splitters mapping table.
      File Path
      Specify the full path name of the uncompressed file to be parsed on your server.
      Example: /tmp/MyFile.xls
      Character Set
      Select a character set from the drop-down list.
      # of Record to Print
      Specify the number of records to print.
      Record Id’s
      Enter one or more record IDs separated by commas if you want to display specific records only.
      Example: 12345, 4689
    3. Click Execute.

    The DEDUP Test Tool

    The DEDUP Test tool allows you to test two records to see if they are duplicate records. If the records match, the output contains the criteria the algorithm used to match the records.
    To perform a DEDUP test:
    1. Click DEDUP test on the System Tests & Monitor page.
      The DEDUP Test Utility page opens.
      DEDUP Test Utility Page
    2. Enter the ID of the first record in the Record ID1 field.
    3. Enter the ID of the second record in the Record ID2 field.
      To reverse the order of the record IDs, click .
    4. Click Execute.
      The following figure shows the results of two matching records.

    The FRBR Test Tool

    The FRBR Test tool allows you to test two records to see if they are in the same FRBR group. If the records match, the output contains the matching keys for each record. In addition, this tool allows you to specify a single record to find its matching records.
    To perform a FRBR test:
    1. Click FRBR test on the System Tests & Monitor page.
      The FRBR Test Utility page opens.
      FRBR Test Utility Page
    2. Select one of the following test modes:
      • Single – allows you to display the matching record IDs for a single record.
      • Multiple – allows you to display the keys for matching records.
    3. Enter the ID of the first record in the Record ID1 field.
    4. If you are testing multiple records, enter the ID of the second record in the Record ID2 field.
    5. Click Execute.
      The following figure shows the results of two matching records. For more information, see FRBRization.

    The Test RTA Plugin Tool

    The RTA Test tool allows on-premises customers to test a record to see if the RTA plugin provides the latest availability information per location.
    To perform an RTA test:
    1. Click Test RTA Plugin on the System Tests & Monitor page.
      The Test RTA Plugin page opens.
