Important and useful support information about end-of-product support, new service releases, and general support topics.
Hello Qlik Users!
We would like to announce the deprecation of the Centralized Logging service in Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows by the end of 2021.
We will remove the Centralized Logging service to make Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows more reliable and performant.
Logging will continue to be available in file format. We are updating the monitoring applications to support this change and provide you with the same insights.
With Qlik Sense Enterprise May 2021 and on, a fresh installation of Qlik Sense Enterprise on Windows will not deploy Centralized Logging.
We will provide a firm date for the removal of the service later this year.
As always, feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
Thank you for choosing Qlik!
Qlik Global Support
Could we know why is it going to be deprecated?From this post I see there are some issues with latest releases of PostgreSQL 12... but is there any other reason?Knowing them could be helpful, to explain to customers why it is going to be removed (even if, in most of our environments, we avoided installing it)Many thanks,RIccardo
@rzenere_methode deprecation of centralized logging is not related to the PostgreSQL database.
My experience is that centralized logging has had limited value for most customers. These would be my main explanation of why database logging is not required in general.
Thanks @ToniKautto, those are the same reasons why we avoided to deploy it!Riccardo
Additionally, the logging service never captured all of the logs from the system. None of the microservices have ever used it, so it was never able to fully replace file based logging.
Given the growing number and importance of these services, it would be imprudent to rely only on the contents of the logging database.
@mountaindude : Do I remember correctly and Butler SOS relies on Logging DB? What will this mean for realtime monitoring for Qlik Sense?
I've recently added an extra measure to the central logging settings, so it also includes a certain disk drives free space %-ratio to the performance logging. That is in addition to the current performance measures, where some of them only exist in the centralized logging database - not in the filelogs.
How do you advice to proceed in order to expose such a measure in the future?
