Logs

Logs

Effective in version 10.0, the default location for system logs is
<Informatica installation directory>/logs/<node name>/
.
The domain stores application services logs and system logs in the default location. You can change the default directory path for logs with the System Log Directory option. You can use this option with any of the following commands:
  • infasetup DefineDomain
  • infasetup DefineGatewayNode
  • infasetup DefineWorkerNode
  • infasetup UpdateGatewayNode
  • infasetup UpdateWorkerNode
Previously, the domain stored application services logs and system logs in different locations. The default directory for system logs was
<Informatica installation directory>/tomcat/logs/
.
For more information, see the "Log Management" chapter in the
Informatica 10.0 Administrator Guide.

Log Format

Effective in version 10.0, all logs consistently contain the following information by default:
  • Thread name.
  • Timestamp, in milliseconds.
Previously, this information was not consistent in logs. For example, some logs did not contain timestamp information, and of those that did, the timestamp format was not consistent.
For more information, see the "Log Management" chapter in the
Informatica 10.0 Administrator Guide.

Job Log Events

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.
Previously the DTM stored the log files in a folder named
builtinhandlers
.
