Configuring Logging

Logging enables NetGovern Search to collect troubleshooting information on problems with a storage location. When you configure NetGovern Search to log information, a report is automatically submitted by email to the designated administrator for review.

Logging configures NetGovern Archive to be very verbose during its operations. This is helpful for troubleshooting problems during jobs. When you configure NetGovern Archive to log information, the new information is captured in the SQL database. You can subsequently download it in the form of a report (.csv)—see Viewing Reports.

Unless specifically troubleshooting an issue, logging should remain deactivated due to the large amount of information collected on every run. This can grow the database to an unmanageable size and adversely impact performance of all jobs in the system.
