This documentation is for legacy Kiwi Syslog Server versions 9.8.2 and older.
Set this Kiwi Syslog Server registry setting value to "1" to enable debug for both the Service and Manager.
|Section (32-bit Windows OS)||HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Options|
|Section (64-bit Windows OS)||HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\WOW6432Node\SolarWinds\Syslogd\Options|
Command line value
Syslogd.exe, Syslogd_Service.exe & Syslogd_Manager.exe
When the program is run with this registry value set to "1", a debug file is created in the install directory. The file name will depend on the executable name (see below). The debug file will contain the results from the program start-up and socket initialization routines.
SyslogNormal = Syslogd_Startup.txt
SyslogService = Syslogd_Service_Startup.txt
SyslogManager = Syslogd_Manager_Startup.txt
When to use
If the program does not appear to be receiving messages on the port specified on the "Inputs" setup option, check the start-up debug file to ensure the sockets initialized correctly. If the program appears to crash on start-up, this option can help locate the problem.
