Configure the Logging settings

The System Settings page includes a Logging Settings option that allows you to log selected events in your deployment for troubleshooting and resolution.

To configure these settings, click the Configuration tab > System Settings > Logging Settings and select the events you want to monitor. All selected settings are the default settings.

Except where noted, all events are recorded in the ipm.log file. To view the file, click the Configuration tab and then click Log Files under Tools.

After you make your selections, click OK.

Application Events

Select these options to record the startup and shutdown times, as well as any background failures and warnings in the ipm.log file.

Web Events

Select these options to record client session events in the ipm.log file. These web events provide important security information about your ipMonitor environment.

Monitor Events

Select these options to record monitor events in the ipm.log file.

To prevent the ipm.log file from becoming too large in a short amount of time, select only the events you need to monitor in your environment.

Alert Events

Select these options to record alerting events in the ipm.log file. These events can help you troubleshoot and resolve problematic alerts.

SNMP Events

Select these options to record SNMP Trap events and details in the snmptrap.log file. These events can help you confirm that ipMonitor is receiving SNMP Traps when you configure a QA Trap monitor. To view the file, click the Configuration tab and then click Log Files under Tools.
