11.4.40. truncatetext.js Filter

The truncatetext filter truncates a MySQL BLOB field.

Pre-configured filter name truncatetext
JavaScript Filter File tungsten-replicator/support/filters-javascript/truncatetext.js
Property prefix replicator.filter.truncatetext
Stage compatibility binlog-to-q, q-to-dbms
tpm Option compatibility --svc-extractor-filters, --svc-extractor-filters
Data compatibility Row events
Parameter Type Default Description
length numeric (none) Maximum size of truncated field (bytes)

The length is determined by the length parameter in the properties:


Statement-based events are ignored, but row-based events are processed for each volume value, checking the column type, isBlob() method and then truncating the contents when they are identified as larger than the configured length. To confirm the type, it is compared against the Java class com.continuent.tungsten.replicator.extractor.mysql.SerialBlob, the class for a serialized BLOB value. These need to be processed differently as they are not exposed as a single variable.

if (value.getValue() instanceof com.continuent.tungsten.replicator.extractor.mysql.SerialBlob)
  blob = value.getValue();
  if (blob != null)
    valueBytes = blob.getBytes(1, blob.length());
    if (blob.length() > truncateTo)
