Configuring Logging Settings

Admins can configure the logging level in Shares based on the desired logging density and the tolerance for performance impacts under higher logging levels. Five logging levels are available: debug, info, warn, error, and fatal. Logging levels are set to info by default, which logs application events.

If you are troubleshooting Shares, you may want to increase the logging level to debug, which logs application events as well as more detailed information aimed at developers. Debug generates the most log entries, causing the logs to fill up and rotate faster, and incurs the greatest performance penalty.

Errors and warnings are logged but may also be viewed in the Shares web application. For more information, see Errors and Warnings.
