I thought this wouldn't be an issue. Again I'm stumped. I'm trying to check the log files to see when Cognos has crashed.
1. The log files in Express Manager > Events Messages Panel don't show when Cognos crashed. It shows when Cognos was backed up (stopped and started) but not crashed. I know this because I know that Cognos has crashed and the events are not listed.
2. the Express Manager > Manager > View Logs aren't any better.
3. I went to logs\express\ExpressDiagnostic.xml and the level is set to "Warning".
4. Looking further I went to logs\express\express.log and found something that may be what I'm looking for: "The IBM Cognos Express service has started successfully."
There is no entry indicating that Cognos has stopped unexpectedly but as these entries are infrequent and are not at a scheduled time it appears to be what I'm looking for. But, even if this is it there is no stated error log indicating why Cognos crashed.

Re: Log Files - trying to get a history of when Cognos has crashed2013-02-03T22:40:14ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.Hi Glibert,
Also try the file cogserver.log in the directory <cognos install path>\logs, this should be one level up from the directory containing the express.log file.
Hope this helps.
