Problem with running inductive miner

I use Prom 6.7.

I loaded an CSV file (; seperated) to Prom. The file has 163.000 events in 5000 cases. 

After loading the CSV file I ran the plug in CSV to XES. The CSV parser screen looked fine. I defined the case, event and timestamp. The plug gave a good result.

After that I tried to run the inductive miner. I used two different plug ins: Mine a petri net with inductive miner and Mine the inductive visual miner. Both ran for more than 12 hours without any result (still running, no errors).

What did I do wrong?


  • Hi Menno, Would it be possible to share the csv file or the generated event log? Kind regards, Sander

  • Hallo Sander,

    Thanks for your reaction. I found already what the problem was. It was the mapping of the timestamps (in the default the month and day were defined as one position and the file was 2 positions). 

    Another question: do you know if there are good help files for these plugins. It took me a lot of time to find the issue.

    Thanks, Menno
  • Hi Menno,

    Good to read that you find a way around it :)

    Nevertheless, would it be possible to share the event log, such that we can investigate and solve bugs for other users? It should not run for so long.
