The log messages produced by Qlik Sense provide important information about the general well-being of the deployment.

The logging is based on the log4net component in Apache Logging Services. This means that Qlik Sense uses a standardized logging framework and conforms to standard logging procedures.

Updated logging framework

An updated logging framework was introduced in Qlik Sense version 2.0. Unless otherwise stated, the documentation describes the updated logging framework.

Legacy logging framework

The legacy logging framework is still available in Qlik Sense, but the logs are as of Qlik Sense version 2.0 referred to as trace logs. The log files remain the same, in the old logging format, but they are stored in a new location.
