Error Logging - Enable Logging to ST_LOG

The EQuIS Enterprise log4net.config is configured for the AdoNetAppender enabled with logging level set to "Off." No other appenders are configured. When this ST_CONFIG entry is absent or the STRING_VALUE represents a UTC date and time in the past, no logging will be performed. By setting the STRING_VALUE to a UTC date and time in the future, logging will be enabled and sent to the ST_LOG table. This arrangement removes the need for access to the application server to enable logging.

Namespace – EarthSoft.EDP

Products Affected – Enterprise Web Application and Enterprise Workflow Service

Requires Module – log4net

 

Instructions

 

1.Modify the log4net.config file to turn logging on. The log4net.config file can be found in the C:\Program Files\EarthSoft\Enterprise7\bin folder.

 

Note: There is no option to set the logging level—it is either Off or All.

 

In the example below, at approximately line 97, the level value was changed from "off" to "all".

 

<root>

    <level value="all" />

    <!--<appender-ref ref="RollingLogFileAppender" />-->

    <!--<appender-ref ref="ConsoleAppender"/>-->

    <appender-ref ref="AdoNetAppender"/>

  </root>
