Logging

The log will be written to the logs folder relative to the connector (i.e. [Totalview Installation]\TotalviewWallboard\logs). By default the logs will be kept for 30 days, and the log for today is called “_current.log”. Any internal log errors will be logged to _internal-log.log

To  change logging level edit the Logging->LogLevel section the appsettings.json file found in the folder [Totalview Installation]\TotalviewWallboard. The default values are:

"Logging": {
    "LogLevel": {
        "Default": "Information",
        "Microsoft": "Error"
    }
}

Valid logging levels are:

Trace, Debug, Information, Warning, Error, Critical, None

NB! If you set the log level to Trace it will log a lot of data. Only have this enabled for a short time.

If noting is written to log

To diagnose logging problems you can try and lower the logging level for the _internal-log.log and maybe change where the internal log is written. It might be a write permission problem.

To change the internal-log open the file NLog.config in the folder [Totalview Installation]\TotalviewWallboard.

  • To change log level update the internalLogLevel (Valid levels are Trace, Debug, Info, Warn, Error, Fatal, Off)
  • To change log file path update the internalLogFile

Default values are:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<nlog xmlns="http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd"
      xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
      xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.nlog-project.org/schemas/NLog.xsd NLog.xsd"
      autoReload="true"
      throwExceptions="true"
      internalLogLevel="Error"
      internalLogFile="logs\_internal-log.log">
