Click Set Log Details to select the following additional items that to record in the log.
Ensures that messages issued by the Scheduler Service are logged in the OM Plus system log. The number of messages the Scheduler Service issues can cause the logfile to expand rapidly. This selection should only be used for debugging purposes.
Ensures that messages issued by the Admin Service are written to the OM Plus system log. When performing many administrative functions, such as defining a new destination, several messages may appear in the log.
Ensures that messages issued by the End-to-End Service are written to the OM Plus system log.
OM Transfer Service
Destinations with a mode of OM Plus and multiple OM Plus servers working together use this service extensively. The number of extra messages that appear in the log depends on the number of destinations using this mode.
Ensures that messages issued by the Distribution Service are written to the OM Plus system log.
Ensures that messages issued by the filter will be written to the OM Plus System log. The filter runs every time a request de-spools. This option causes the logfile to expand quickly; therefore use this only for debugging purposes.
Ensures that the dcclp command line issued or generated by the port monitor will be written to the OM Plus system log. This adds an extra line to the log for each spooled item. This feature is useful for debugging purposes.
Ensures that OM Plus logs all types of TCP/IP socket activity, such as connection openings and closings. If the system has network printers or remote destinations, a large number of entries will appear in the log, therefore this should only be used for debugging purposes.
Socket Data Trace
Writes a hex dump of all data passed through a TCP/IP socket. Any network access by OM Plus adds large numbers of lines to the log. Before selecting this option, contact Plus Technologies Support for instructions.
Logs information pertaining to the OM Plus Security system. This creates large numbers of entries in the log. Unlike the other selections, turning this off removes all messages pertaining to the Security system from the log.
