When you attach the session log to a post-session email, enable flat file logging. If you enable flat file logging, the Integration Service gets the session log file from disk. If you do not enable flat file logging, the Integration Service gets the log events from the Log Manager and generates the session log file to attach to the email. When the Integration Service retrieves the session log from the log service, workflow performance slows, especially when the session log file is large and the log service runs on a different node than the master DTM. For optimal performance, configure the session to write to log file when you configure post-session email to attach a session log.
