Where are the log files during reload ?

Hello,

In Qlikview 11.2, I'm used to look at the .log generated by a reload during the reload itself : i can see where the process is and I can image how much time remains before the end of the reload.

I'm trying to use Publisher 12.1 now and during a reload I cannot see the .log in the same folder as the source file. It only appears when the reload is ended

Is there a way to look at the in-progress log file ? in which folder is it ?

Is it a new feature of v12 or is it the normal feature of Publisher ?

Thanks

Re: Where are the log files during reload ?

For v12.xx and during a reload, log files are kept in a QVB-specific folder and only copied to the correct Distribution Service log folder when the task (somehow) finishes.

During reloads, have a look in: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewBatch

The story appears to be that Qlik reorganised log file generation to get better reload performance.

Try to look to the logs from the task itself. The document-log should be there too with a path similar to this one:

\\YourServer\D\QlikViewServer\ProgramData\DistributionService\1\Log

Thanks Marcus but it is the log of the task, not the log of the reload

thanks anyway, we have all links available now with Peter's answer
