Changing how the ILST logs events

You can modify how the ILST logs events by editing the NLog.config file found in your ILST folder. You may want to modify this file to gain additional information when troubleshooting or to moderately improve performance and reduce the size of the log file.

When troubleshooting issues with the Igloo Support team, ensure the log level is set to Trace.

Log levels

The available levels of logging, from most to least verbose, are:

  • Trace (default setting)
  • Debug 
  • Info 
  • Warn 
  • Error 
  • Fatal 

Each log level includes events at its level and events that occur in the levels above it. For example, if you use Info, then Info, Warn, Error, and Fatal events are logged.

How to change the log level

  1. Open the NLog.config file found in your ILST folder.
  2. In the <logger> element, change the value of minlevel to the log level you want to use. For example:
    <logger name="*" minlevel="Trace" writeTo="logfile" />
  3. Save your NLog.config l file.
