Configuring DSS Logging

To configure DSS logging, go to Administration > System Options > Dynamic Site Server > Dynamic Site Server Logging.

The DSS has four logging levels:

  • Errors: Logs only publishing errors.
  • Warnings: Logs publishing errors and warning messages.
  • Informational: Logs startup and shutdown of the application, search errors, search-related messages, errors in site configuration, traffic data, and other general information.
  • Debugs: Logs files returned from cache, errors occurring with DSS expansion of pages, and the igxxmlsvr80.dll. 

As with the CMS, more information is written to the DSS log file as the logging levels increase. Depending upon the environment and the size of the site, the Debug logging level can impact performance. Ingeniux recommends using Informational logging unless more information is required for debugging an issue, in which case Debug logging can be temporarily enabled.

Listed below are some sample entries of the various logging levels:


[INFO] [20060726T12:53:56] Starting Runtime Server [ProcessID: 2924 ThreadID: 1988]


[DEBUG] [20060726T12:53:56] CXMLProcessorBase::doSequentialNav()
