Reviewer service log files

There are three log files that are generated with the Data Reviewer service: the engine log, the server log, and the service job status file. All three of these files allow you to track the current status of the service and results returned by batch jobs in the service job file.

The engine log

This log file contains a detailed summary of all the events and processing messages that occur when a service job is running. There is also metadata about the batch job, such as when it was created and by whom, and when it was edited. An example of the log output is below.

Since this log records all the actions of the service while it is executing the service job file, you cannot view it while the service job is running. This file can only be viewed when the service is not running batch jobs on the data.

The server log

This log file contains continuous status information about the Data Reviewer service. This includes when the server and service are started and the results of the batch job once it is run. This log is stored as an Extensible Markup Language (XML) or comma-separated value (CSV) file based on the format you choose, and is regenerated every time the service is restarted after being shut down. That is, when the service is shut down, the log ends, and once it is restarted, a new log is created.

The server log is saved as revserver.<current date and time>, with the date and start time appended to the file name in the following format:


The service job status log

This log file is an XML version of the information shown in the Status dialog box. The properties for the service job file status include the following:

The Windows Application Event Log can also be scanned for Data Reviewer service entries. The Source value for the service is RevService.
