Server log

Use the Server Log page to view the contents of the SecureTransport log messages from the following SecureTransport components: the Transaction Manager (TM) and the processes that implement the AS2, FTP, HTTP, SSH (SFTP), and SOCKS5 protocols, the Administration Tool interface (ADMIN), and auditing (AUDIT).

When you open the Server Log page, SecureTransport automatically loads the server log records for the past hour. This behavior is determined by the ServerLog.InitialLoading.Enabled.Admin server configuration option. It is available on SecureTransport Edge and SecureTransport Server and accepts boolean values. The option is set to true by default. To disable the initial auto-loading of log entries on the page, set the option to false. When having a large number of logs, you can filter the entries based on one or more criteria to speed up reporting.

By default, the server log entries are stored in the SecureTransport database. If you have the Enterprise Cluster (EC) option and are using an Oracle database, you can store the server log data in a separate external database from the rest of the SecureTransport data. See Direct log data to separate Oracle databases.

Each line in the log display include the following information:

  • TIME – The date and time the entry was logged. This is link you can use to display more detailed information.
  • LEVEL – The severity level of the entry.
  • COMPONENT – The name of the SecureTransport component that produced the entry.
  • THREAD – The ID of the SecureTransport execution thread that produced the entry.
  • MESSAGE – The primary log information.

On SecureTransport Server, but not on SecureTransport Edge, the following information is also included.

  • SESSION ID – An identifier of the login session associated with the entry. This is a link you can use to copy the session ID into the Session ID field in the search criteria.
  • TRANSFER ID – An identifier of the file transfer associated with this entry. This is a link you can use to copy the transfer ID into the Transfer ID field in the search criteria.

Also, you can export the filtered log entries to a .csv file.
