Planning Analytics and TM1 logs

You can use Planning Analytics logs to monitor the performance of the TM1 Server and the TM1 Admin Server. For example, dimensions and cubes produce messages when they load, and the TM1 Server reports messages when it starts and stops.

You can control the quantity and focus of logging by selectively turning on or off individual TM1 loggers in the logging properties file. The default logging configuration is INFO level messages for all areas of TM1.

Note: You can manage IBM® Planning Analytics with Watson™ log files to prevent the accumulation of log files in the TM1 database log directory. Accumulation of log files might cause problems when a TM1 Server or Planning Analytics Administration attempts to access existing log file.
