How to Change the Log Reporting Levels and Reset the Log Files

You can use the following procedure to change the log reporting level from the Application Virtualization node in the Application Virtualization Management Console. When the log file reaches the maximum size (default is 256 MB), a reset is forced when the next write to the log occurs. A reset causes a new log file to be created, and the old file is renamed as a backup.

To change the log reporting level

  1. Right-click the Application Virtualization node, and select Properties from the pop-up menu.

  2. On the General tab in the Properties dialog box, from the Log Level drop-down list, select the desired log level.

    Note
    If you choose Verbose as the logging level, the log files will grow large very quickly. This might inhibit client performance, so best practice is to use this log level only for diagnosing specific problems.

  3. On the General tab in the Properties dialog box, from the System Log Level drop-down list, select the desired log level.

    Note
    The System Log Level setting controls the level of messages sent to the system event log. The logged messages are identical to the messages that get logged to the client event log, but they are stored in a different location.

  4. Click OK or Apply to change the setting.

To reset the log file

  1. Right-click the Application Virtualization node, and select Properties from the pop-up menu.

  2. On the General tab in the Properties dialog box, click Reset Log to back up the current log file and immediately start a new log file. The backup log files are stored in the same folder.

  3. Click OK or Apply to change the setting.
