Server Logging
Previous  Top  Next

There are four different logging options in Spam Sleuth Enterprise

Server Logging
This will log the inbound connections, analyzer loading, any analyzer problems, etc. There are three levels you can choose from:
·Errors Only - Logs only errors and problems you should be aware of  
·Normal - Logs some additional information that may be interesting  
·Debug - Logs inbound conversations, analyzer loading and unloading, reloading of accounts and other information that may be useful in determining the cause of unexpected problems.  

You can turn on Server Logging from SSConfig.

Relay To Host Logging
Under normal circumstances, the conversation between Spam Sleuth Enterprise and your internal e-mail server will not need logging. If there is a problem you can log the conversation so you can diagnose any problems.

Client Logging
The Windows client can Unspam messages, add to Friends, Train the Bayesian Analyzer and more. If there is a problem with the client, you can turn on logging by first logging into the client and then hitting CTRL-ALT-L and set the logging level. The log file will be \\Server\Sleuth\Spam\[user]\SpamSleuth.log. Each user will have their own log file in their own directory.

Statistics Logging (Reporting)
The server can log in formats that you can use to analyze the spam-to-good ratio, number of e-mails, analysis speed and more. The formats are compatible with web log trend analysis software such as WebTrends from NetIQ
, or SawMill, and many more.

To turn on Statistics Logging, add
StatisticsLogging=1 to the SpamSleuthServer.INI in the \Server directory. The log location will be \Server\StatLog

The default is to log in the Extended Log Format. (
StatisticsLoggingFormat=E). The files will be exYYMMDD.log.

You can also log statistics in the Common Log Format by setting
StatisticsLoggingFormat=C in the [General] section of SpamSleuthServer.INI. The files will be ssYYMMDD.log.

The default is to log detail for aliases. If you don't want to log the detail for aliases, add this line to the
SpamSleuthServer.INI in the \Server directory.

If you would like to log to a different location, you can add this line to the
SpamSleuthServer.INI in the \Server directory:
StatisticsLoggingDir=[fully qualified path]
