Understand the Microsoft Windows Event Logging Facility
Connect:Direct® for Microsoft Windows uses the Microsoft Windows Event Logging facility to log informational, warning, and error messages that the server generates during execution. A subset of the Connect:Direct statistics records are also sent to the event log. The event.log initialization parameter determines which of these records to log.
Merging this critical error information with the event log enables the system administrator to have a single point of focus for error information from all Microsoft Windows subsystems. The Event Logging facility also allows for easy correlation of the various error messages that both Connect:Direct and Microsoft Windows generate.
Connect:Direct can generate numerous event records. For control purposes, define a large event log, use the event.log initialization parameter to reduce the number of events Connect:Direct generates, or define the event log to be wraparound.
The event log receives the following information from Connect:Direct for Microsoft Windows:
|Information||Connect:Direct Record IDs||Microsoft Windows Event Type|
|Server initialization/termination||NUIC and NUTC||Informational|
|Communications session start/end||COAC and SEND||Informational|
|Connect:Direct Process start/end||PSTR and PRED||Informational|
|Connect:Direct Process step information||CTRC, PSED, RJED, RTED, and SBED||Informational|
|Connect:Direct Process flush/error||PERR and PFLS||Warning|
