XpoLog manages a set of log files which contains errors, events, system activity, users activity and more.
The logs are located under the 'log' directory in the XpoLog allocated storage (by default under the installation directory). XpoLog uses Log4J to log it's activity and errors and it is possible to modify the Log4J properties if needed (located under <XpoLog-Config>/conf/general/log4jXpolog.properties).
In order to view the XpoLog system log please go to the support portal, select the log you would like to view and click the view button. It is also possible to add the system logs to be presented in XpoLog to get access to all logs directly from the console - from the support portal, basic section click the 'Add System Logs' button and then refresh the browser.
