View Full Version : Where are client log ?

2006-03-16, 07:39
Since 6.x, you can upload client log (client configuration > client setting to configure that). I still have le ZAlog.txt on the client computer (C:\WINDOWS\Internet Logs\ZAlog.txt). But when i check the system counters (ctrl-alt + double clic on integrity logo on the web interface), sometimes i see a number for "Log Upload: files uploaded".

I ve got a cluster (2 servers and 1 MS SQL server) but i dont know where are the client log (integrity server, database ???).
If you could help me , it would be so cool lol

You don't really state what logs you want. Try going to the reporting section in the web console. You can see all the logs uploaded there.

ok thanks
but why i ve got some log on the client ?
(ZAlog.txt, tvDebug.txt,... on C:\Windows\Internet logs\)
After they are upload on the server, they are still on the client :(
Could i do something to purge automatically this log on the client???
thanks again :)

The only thing I would know to do is write a script (WMI perhaps?) that goes and clears out the Internet Logs directory every couple of hours. You'd want a way to check that they were transmitted to the server though.

The Internet logs directory can be flushed in Safe mode. A script will not delete tvdebug.log unless it runs in Safe mode. You can run the command iclient -config clearentries.xml. Where clearentries.xml is a file you create with the clearOldEntries="true" at the integrity tag. This will reset the entire config of the client. This is similar to using the keywork RESETCONFIG = yes when upgrading a endpoint that will remove all setting of the former installation.

If you have a problem with the logs growing too large perhaps there is a configuration issue.

Clarification, there are some files that you can delete without issue. I think the internet log is one of them. You need to test it out. A couple others I was able to delete by renaming them and moving them around. Then, they could be deleted. I believe two of the files can only be deleted in safe mode.

There is a utility zrepair that deletes the entire contents of internet logs without going into safe mode. I believe it can be downloaded from CP.

Oh goodie, that must be new. A little more than a year ago, I was speaking with an escalation eng about this. He made no mention of such a tool, so I can only conclude that it didn't yet exist.
