Accessing the DataServer log

OpenEdge supports a log file named dataserv.lg that is dedicated to tracking information related to DataServers. This single file contains information about the processes for all DataServers operating on your host machine. It provides a useful record of connection and disconnection processes and error messages that you can use to diagnose problems or failures. Each new connection to the same log file appends to the end of the existing file. If you output a detailed log over multiple connections that do a lot of database I/O, the log can quickly take up disk space.
