Set Up Service Log Files
Use this procedure to specify when a new log file will be created for the service. You can also manually start a new log file at any time.
The service log includes all service-related activity for the system and is located in the logs subdirectory of the working directory.
To set up log files
- In the Explorer view, right-click the data source and choose Client Configuration.
- In the Client Configuration dialog box, in the left pane, expand Logging/Tracing.
- Below Logging/Tracing, select Service Log and select the settings you want. If you have multiple systems with services, specify a prefix to identify system-specific log files that would otherwise have the same name.
- Click OK.
To manually start a new log file
- In the Explorer view, right-click the service and choose Switch Service Log.
