    Log Content

    This section controls if logging is enabled, what kind of log to use, and what information you want to include in the logs.

    Log File Enabled When checked, Domain Time II Full Client will log activity to a text log file. By default, the log file is named DOMTIMEC.LOG and is located in the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder.

    Event Viewer logging enabled When checked, Domain Time II Full Client will log activity to the Windows Application Event Logs. This option is not available on Win95/98/ME.

    Enable debug logging Includes large amounts of detailed debugging information in the DOMTIMEC.LOG file. Use this option cautiously, since the log can grow very large.

    Omit warning messages from logs If warnings are disabled, only INFO: messages will be written to the logs. Warning messages are important indicators of potential problems, so only disable them if you are certain you don't need them.

    Omit success messages from logs This setting will permit only warnings and errors, as well as some housekeeping messages to be logged. Normal time sync and control messages will be omitted. Use this setting if your logs are too "chatty" in normal operation. If you are troubleshooting a problem, you will want to uncheck this box.

    Log Retention

    You can set how you want Domain Time II Full Client to deal with the text log file.

    If you select the One continuous file radio button, the log will be written to a single file (DOMTIMEC.LOG) in the %systemroot%\system32 directory. You may select the maximum size of this file using the Maximum Log Size KB setting box.When the log reaches the maximum size specified, older events are rolled off to make room for new ones. Setting this box to 0 allows the file to grow without limitation.

    The other log retention settings (Start a new log file Daily, Weekly or Monthly) cause Domain Time II Full Client to create a new log file on a schedule instead of continuing to write to a single file. This is much more manageable when you have a very active client. You may archive off older files whenever you want and still have a good current history. Log files names will include the date the file was created (i.e. domtimec.20010601.log indicates the log was started June 1, 2001).

    Delete old logfiles
    When using the Daily, Weekly, or Monthly log retention settings, you can have client automatically delete old log files when it creates the new one according to the schedule. This is a useful option if you are concerned about accumulating a lot of older log files.

    View Log

    Use this button to open the built-in Log Viewer where you can view the current log, clear the log, or save it to a file.

    The built-in Log Viewer will show you the current log in real-time.
