Log Settings parameters
The following table lists the Log Settings parameters.
The type of information to be stored in the log file:
Categories selected by default are Reporting, Cache, Session Management, Performance, and Servlet.
|Filter Log by User Name||The statements relating to the user who is logged in with only this user name are recorded. After you enter the user name and save changes, a new log file is started. For log messages displayed on the screen, the filter applies only to new entries. Earlier entries that existed before the user name was changed will still be displayed on the screen, up to the limit set in the View Logs setting. If the field is left blank, all logs related to the current session are stored, regardless of who is logged in. You can enter only enter one name in this field.|
|Log Directory||The directory in which log files are stored, for example, ARSystemInstallDir/Logs. To change the log directory, enter the absolute (complete) path for the new directory. You cannot change the log file name.|
|Maximum Log File Size (kb)||The maximum size (in kilobytes) a file can reach before a backup copy is automatically made. The default size is 1024 KB. The backup copy is made with the same file name (the default is armidtier.log) and an incremental number (for example, armidtierN.log ).|
