How To Verify if Qlik Sense Is Running With Centralized Logging Service
Centralized logging has been introduced since Qlik Sense September 2017 release. After install, it may not be obvious if Sense is using the logging service, or still only logging to flat files.
We aim to explain how to verify if Centralized logging is enabled or disabled.
From what source are the Monitor App QVDs getting data?
The first indication of whether or not Centralized Logging is used, is where the monitoring applications are getting their data from. Navigate to C:\Programdata\Qlik\Sense\Log Files may either have _file or _db added to their filename. governanceLogContent_7.10.0_file.qvd would mean flat files are used. governanceLogContent_7.10.0_db.qvd means the logging database is providing data.
Checking Centralized logging mode using Window OS commend
The following command can validate whether Centralized Logging is enabled or not:
Open CMD.exe as Administrator
Go to Logging folder: cd C:\Program Files\Qlik\Sense\Logging
Run the following command: Qlik.Logging.Service.exe validate
