Viewing the logging details for the Synchronization Tool

When you run the Synchronization Tool, either interactively or from a command line, logs are generated that help you to understand the actions that the tool has performed.

To view the logging details for the Synchronization Tool

  1. Start the Synchronization Tool.

  2. Click View > Logs.

    The following details are displayed:

    Time

    The time that the message was logged.

    Use the Log file drop-down to show the messages that have been logged for a specific date.

    Level

    The importance of messages that are shown. It is a ccumulative setting; if you select INFO, then severe and warning levels are also displayed.

    Use the Log level drop-down to filter the messages. For example, you can choose to display only messages with a level of WARNING.

    • Windows

      Messages with a level of INFO and higher importance are also logged to the application section of the event log.

    • Linux

      Messages with a level of INFO and higher importance are also logged to the user log.

    Logger

    The component of the Synchronization Tool that sourced the message. The components are as follows:

    • Schemus

      All components.

    • Schemus.settings

      Creation of new configuration entries or changes to existing configuration.

    • schemus.sync

      All synchronization operations.

    • Schemus.sync.repository.add

      Entries that are added to the destination repository.

    • Schemus.sync.repository.remove
