Importing csv files into ProM

edited December 2011 in - Usage
Hi all,

I am trying to import some csv log traces into ProM, but the mappings seem to be wrong when generating the log files ... it always puts every <event> into a different <trace> even though the events should be in the same trace. The result of mining this process is always a sequence of events ... which is not true. Do you have some suggestions ?



  • Try to use Nitro first to create an event log out of your csv file. 
    It is very user-friendly and has already some first process mining options (filtering, exploring, statistics,...)

    Kind regards,

  • Forgot to mention :) I am using Linux so i would prefer to have all the tools on this platform. I will try-out Nitro as well, but now I'm focusing on getting the logs generated with XESame instead of importing the csv file .. still did not get that to work
  • Dianac,

    The events are extracted from your CSV file and attached to the trace using a unique value. Are you sure that you filled in the 'traceID' property for both the trace and event mapping definition?
