Events.log FileLocate this document in the navigation structure

The events.log file records various Agentry Server events that occur at run time. Events include startup and shutdown, opening and closing connections to the application’s system connections, loading of Client-Server communication components, memory usage, thread expansion, and used and available storage.

The events log persists until one of the following occurs:
  • The log files are rolled by the Server, at which point they are moved to a backup folder named Logs-Rolled, in a sub-directory named for the date and time. By default, this occurs once every 24 hours provided the Agentry Server is running. With a change to the Server’s configuration, this file may also be moved to a back up location based on file size.
  • The Agentry Server is shut down and restarted. In this case, the events log file is moved to the backup folder Logs-Rolled, again in a sub-directory named for the date and time.

Unlike most other log files generated by the Agentry Server, the events log is always enabled. It cannot be disabled.

The following is an example of the contents of the events.log file:


Each log message is written to a single line. Space restrictions in the example require some of the messages to wrap to multiple lines. Items in the example that are a part of the message above it are tabbed in. Each message begins with a timestamp.

The first column of each message contains the date and time of the event being logged. The next three columns, separated by commas, are the message type, message group, and the message ID. The message type is always a 0 or a 1. A message type of 1 indicates an error message, while a message type of 0 indicates an informational message. The message type is followed by the thread ID, denoted by the text Thr, and finally the message itself.
