Observer Analyzer : Observer Analyzer : Logs : Changing log file behavior
Changing log file behavior
To set where log file data is saved, what types of events are logged, and how long to retain information, click the Log Settings button located above the log window. By default, Observer logs the following event types to a daily log file:
Alarm
SNMP
Probe
Information
VoIP
The daily log file is stored in the LogWindow folder in your Observer installation directory. The log file is written (or appended to) each time you close Observer, or automatically at midnight if Observer is running when the date changes.
To change the behavior of the log file, complete the following steps:
1. In the bottom portion of Observer’s main window, click Log Settings. The Log Settings window appears.
