Log file list

SecureTransport writes to several log files in multiple locations. These files can be used to monitor SecureTransport processes and identify any issues that can occur. Some messages are logged directly to the database and are visible in the Server Log page. For more information, see Server log.

You can open log files in a text editor to review them and to find specific messages.

The following table describes the log files used by SecureTransport and provides the location and a brief description of each file. Several log files share the same name. When viewing the table, make sure that you note the location of the log file you want to find.
