Show log file in File Manager

Log messages of ServerManager and SiteArchitect will be stored separately for each started client.

The storage location of the log files on the user's client workstation is configurable (see configuration options).
Default option: the log messages will be stored in the user home directory of the respective user's client workstation.

The file names contain the client name (“ServerManager” or “SiteArchitect”) and a timestamp (date and time) of the point of time when the client has been started, for example


Log files will be stored up to a total number of 100 files or until all files have reached a combined size of 100 MB. If one of those limits is reached, the oldest log files will be deleted one by one.

The menu entry “Show log file in File Manager” opens the local storage directory. The file with the current logging will be selected. The timestamp as part of the file name helps to identify the log messages of previously closed clients in the storage directory.

Additionally, the current logging may be observed in a separate log window (function “View log”, see above).


Selecting this function opens the FirstSpirit Online Documentation in the browser.
