Accessing the Dr. Watson log file (Windows)

This task describes how to access the Dr. Watson™ log files on Windows systems.

About this task

The Dr. Watson log, drwtsn32.log, is a chronology of all the exceptions that have occurred on the system. The Db2® trap files are more useful than the Dr. Watson log, though it can be helpful in assessing overall system stability and as a document of the history of Db2 traps.


Locate the Dr. Watson log file.
The default path is <install_drive>:\Documents and Settings \All Users\Documents\DrWatson
