Log Monitor

The Log Monitor loads and visualizes almost all available Qlik Sense log data. This gives you the possibility to discover trends and analyze and troubleshoot issues in your Qlik Sense environment. Compared to the Operations Monitor, the Log Monitor loads more log files, but for a shorter period of history (default seven days).

Information noteFor a more detailed description of the sheets and visualizations, visit the story About the Log Monitor that is available from the app overview page, under Stories.

For the location and naming convention of the log files, see Logging.
