    Cleaning Log Files

      I have just put the Governance dashboard in place, but I want to start with a clean slate of files. How do I clean out the log files? Where all do I need to clean out to have a total blank slate? I don't want to accidentily delete something that is needed.

          If you just want to clean up Server / Publisher log files, remove all files under:

          1. For Server: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer  -> this is the default location. However, you might have installed it elsewhere.
          2. For Publisher: C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\DistributionService\TaskResults --> This will remove the last task result for each doc task in Publisher.


          With Server path, you might leave the following files which are not scanned by the Dashboard:

          • BorrowedCalData.pgo
          • CalData.pgo
          • Exit.log
          • FUL.dat (if there)
          • IniData.pgo
          • Lef.txt
          • ServerCounters.pgo
          • Settings.ini
          • TicketData.pgo



          If you are just looking to start fresh with the Governance Dashboard (i.e., remove prior scan logs), remove all the files under:

          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Governance_1.1\profiles\default\QVX_LastRun
          • C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\Governance_1.1\profiles\default\QVD_Historical


          Once again, these are the default folder locations.
