Board Connector logs all steps performed on a system in log files.
The log files are stored in the product directory
Different types of log files are created.
|Server||ServiceLog.txt||Contains the activities of BCService.exe.||
|Server||WebServer-Log: yyyyMMddTHHmmss.fffZ.log, e.g., 20201013T055455.465Z.log||The name contains the timestamp in UTC. A new file is created when the server is started, additionally a new log file is created every 24 hours. Theobald.Bc.Web.Listener.exe is the corresponding process.||
|Server||Run-Logs: yyyyMMddTHHmmss.fffZ.log, e.g., 20201013T055455.465Z.log||The name contains the timestamp in UTC. A new file is created when a TCP connection is accepted.Theobald.Bc.Web.Worker.exe is the corresponding process.||
|Extraction||Extraction logs: yyyyMMddTHHmmss.fffZ.log, e.g., 20201013T055455.465Z.log||The name contains the timestamp in UTC. A new file is created to start an extraction. Theobald.Bc.Web.Worker.exe is the corresponding process.||
For more information on the server processes, see Server.
Tip: To redirect logs to another location, symlink the logs folder of the installation directory to a custom directory.
Example for PowerShell:
New-Item -ItemType SymbolicLink -Target "E:\yuniolog" -Path "C:\Program Files\XtractProduct\logs"
Log Levels #
Each log entry is assigned to a so-called log level. There are the following log levels:
- Errors are error messages issued during the extraction process.
- Information - Status messages, about processes that do not lead to an error.
- Warnings - Information about problems that do not lead to an extraction error. For example authentication errors.
- Debug Details - detailed information that helps to find the reason for errors.
Reading Logs - Extraction Log #
To better understand the procedures of Board Connector, read the logs written in understandable language. The example log from Xtract Universal can be used as a reference, as the procedures are similar to Board Connector. The only difference is that Board Connector does not have destinations and data is always written to Board.
