See the online help: Troubleshooting Qlik Sense using logs ‒ Qlik Sense

You can also use the Operations Monitor

You're not going to get much for tracing ODBC / OLE DB failures honestly. Just today I helped trace an OLE DB failure where the root cause was an additional ; copied from the connection string for the password. The Engine > Service log basically just outputted what we already knew (that the connection failed).

In general the best logs are going to be in Server > Trace > System (e.g. Engine > Trace > System).

The page Gysbert mentioned above is quite good in getting you oriented to consuming Qlik Sense logs.

Are there other specific use cases that you have in mind?
