Setting the task logging level

Setting the task logging level

In the Log Management window, you can set the logging level for the task you are currently monitoring as well as view, download, and delete log files.

Information note
  • The logging level can also be set in the Logging Level sub-tab in the Task Settings dialog box. For more information, see Logging.

  1. Open the task you are working with if it is not displayed in the Qlik Replicate Console. For information on opening a task, see Editing a replication task.
  2. Switch to Monitor view. Then, click the Tools toolbar button and select Log Management.

    The Log Managementwindow opens.

  1. At the top of the Log Management window, set the Component Logging Level slider to the log level you want. This sets the logging level for all log modules. Note that all of the sliders for the individual modules move to the same position that you set in the main slider.
  2. Make any changes to the sliders for the individual modules. This is optional. Note that if you change the main slider, all of the individual sliders are reset to the new position. If you want to maintain a different logging level for a specific module, you need to reset it.

Storing trace and verbose logging in memory

When the logging level is set to "Trace" or "Verbose", you can instruct Replicate to store the logging information in memory until an error occurs. On detecting an error, Replicate will begin writing to the physical logs and continue to do so for a few minutes after the initial occurrence of the error.

If no error occurs before the allocated memory is used up, Replicate will empty the memory buffer and start afresh.

This option is useful for tasks that fail unpredictably and for no obvious reason. The problem with continually writing large amounts of information to the logs is twofold:

  • Running in "Trace" or "Verbose" logging mode will quickly use up available disk space (unless the logging settings have been configured to prevent this).
  • Continually writing large amounts of data to the logs will affect performance.

To use this option

  1. Select the Store trace/verbose logging in memory, but if an error occurs, write to the logs check box at the top of the tab.
  2. In the Allocate memory up to (MB) field, specify the amount of memory you want to allocate for storing logging information.
