Logs

Logs

The Data Integration Service generates log events about service configuration and processing and about the jobs that the DTM runs.
The Data Integration Service generates the following types of log events:
Service log events
The Data Integration Service process generates log events about service configuration, processing, and failures. These log events are collected by the Log Manager in the domain. You can view the logs for the Data Integration Service on the Logs tab of the Administrator tool.
Job log events
The DTM generates log events about the jobs that it runs. The DTM generates log events for the following jobs:
  • Previews, profiles, scorecards, or mappings run from the Analyst tool or the Developer tool
  • Deployed mappings
  • Logical data objects
  • SQL data service queries
  • Web service operation mappings
  • Workflows
You can view the logs for these jobs on the Monitor tab of the Administrator tool.
When the DTM runs, it generates log events for the job that it is running. The DTM bypasses the Log Manager and sends the log events to log files. The DTM stores the log files in the Log Directory property specified for the Data Integration Service process. Log files have a
.log
file name extension.
If you created a custom location for logs before upgrading to the current version of Informatica, the Data Integration Service continues to write logs to that location after you upgrade. When you create a new Data Integration Service, the Data Integration Service writes logs to the default location unless you specify a different location.
When the Workflow Orchestration Service Module runs a workflow, it generates log events for the workflow. The Workflow Orchestration Service Module bypasses the Log Manager and sends the log events to log files. The Workflow Orchestration Service Module stores the log files in a folder named
workflow
in the log directory that you specify for the Data Integration Service process.
When a Mapping task in a workflow starts a DTM instance to run a mapping, the DTM generates log events for the mapping. The DTM stores the log files in a folder named
mappingtask
in the log directory that you specify for the Data Integration Service process.
