This method enables the caller to specify which server's log files should be read by your custom logging module. This is accomplished by passing ILogScripting::SetInputServerInstance the metabase instance number of the server.

virtual HRESULT STDMETHODCALLTYPE SetInputServerInstance(
   LONG iServerInstance,
   DATE startDateTime,
   DATE endDateTime


  • iServerInstance
    [in] A LONG that specifies the server instance number.

  • startDateTime
    [in] Specifies the starting date and time.

  • endDateTime
    [in] Specifies the ending date and time.


The caller is free to call eitherILogScripting:SetInputServerInstance or ILogScripting::SetInputLogFile. It is not necessary, nor is it proper, for the caller to call both ILogScripting::Set... methods in the same attempt to read a log file. The second ILogScripting::Set... call will simply reset the read initiated by the first call.

After this method is called, the caller is obliged to call ILogScripting::ReadLogRecord before calling any of the ILogScripting::Get... methods.
