Logging

On the Logging tab, the settings for the session, performance, event, and audit logs can be managed.

Logging

Enable Session Logging

To enable the detailed session logging from the QlikView Server, tick this check box. The stored log file will be named Session-Stats.log.

Enable Performance Logging Every

To enable the performance logging from the QlikView Server, tick this check box, and enter a suitable logging interval, between 1 and 1440 minutes (24 hours). The stored log file will be named Performance.log.

Default value: 5 minutes.

Enable Event Logging

To enable mirroring to a log file of the entries from the QlikView Server to the Windows event log, tick this check box. The stored file will be named Events.log.

Enable Audit Logging

To enable the logging of user selections, clear selections, sheet activation, the application of bookmarks, report access, and the maximization of objects, tick this check box. The stored file will be named as described in Log Folder.

See: Log Folder

To enable the logging to include more details (for example, all selections that come with a bookmark), tick this check box:

  • Enable Extensive Audit Logging

Log Folder

The folder in which the QlikView Server will create and store the log file can be configured. To select a folder, enter the valid and absolute path in this text box, or click on the Browse icon, , and choose the folder in the Choose Folder dialog.

Default value: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer

Event Log Verbosity

This setting controls how much information that will be written to the event log files. To configure the verbosity level, select one of the following options:

  • Low
  • Medium
  • High
Note: The high log level might cause heavy load on the system.

Split Files

This setting controls how often the log files are to be split, that is, a new file is created and used, in order to avoid having too large files. When this setting is used, all log files are split: event logs, session logs, performance logs, and audit logs. To configure the recurrence time for splitting files, select one of the following options:

  • Never, meaning that the event log files are never split, the same one file is always used.
  • Daily, meaning that each event log file contains information from a day, at maximum.
  • Weekly, meaning that each event log file contains information from a week, at maximum.
  • Monthly, meaning that each event log file contains information from a month, at maximum.
  • Yearly, meaning that each event log file contains information from a year, at maximum.
Note: For the change in Split File setting to become effective you must restart QlikView Server (QVS).
