Error and mail logs

Kiwi Syslog Server automatically creates an error log that you can use for troubleshooting. You can also choose to log information about emails that Kiwi Syslog Server sends.

The error log

Kiwi Syslog Server writes to the error log if it has a problem writing messages to a log file or archiving log files. It also records any other error messages it encounters. If you are troubleshooting a problem, information in this log might help.

To open this log from the Kiwi Syslog Service Manager, select View > View error log file.

The log file location is <installDir>\ErrorLog.txt.

The send mail log

To log information about each email message that Kiwi Syslog Server sends, go to E-mail settings and select Keep a log file of e-mail activity.

If this option is selected, you can open the send mail log by selecting View > View e-mail log file.

When this option is selected, Kiwi Syslog Server emails an alarm notification or the daily statistics, it records information about the email in the email log file. 

The log file location is <installDir>\SendMailLog.txt.
