What is Aclient logging (aclient.log) and how is it used?
What information it logs
The aclient.log contains information from the initialization of the aclient until it shuts down. Generally the information that is logged is what functions the aclient is calling and any errors encountered. There are some exceptions to that where even more granular information is collected such as inventory details and schedule details.
When to use the aclient.log
Typically this log is collected and analyzed when there is a communication problem with the deployment server or when a configuration task is not working as expected on the client.
How to enable and capture the log
