BMC Atrium Core Console client-side logging

BMC Atrium Core logs the BMC Atrium Core Console client-side processing in the flashlog.txt file, which helps you to debug user interface errors. To log the client-side processing, install and configure the 7, 0, 14, 112 or newer version of Adobe Flash Player Debugger. The BMC Atrium Core Console requires a minimum of Adobe Flash Player version 9 to run.


The Adobe Flash Player log combines messages from all its instances running on your computer. For example, if you were running two instances of Adobe Flash Player with and BMC Atrium Core each on the same computer, you might find intermixed log messages from both these instances.

To determine your Adobe Flash Player Debugger version

Use the following methods to determine the version of the Adobe Flash Player Debugger that you have installed. If the version you determined using each method differs, the debug logging might encounter issues. In such a case, uninstall all versions of the Adobe Flash Player Debugger and install again.
