Log Analysis

The Log Analysis console allows you to analyze Genesys application log files. You can open several log files and review key data points, such as ConnIDs, for a single call flow across application logs.

Available actions include:

  • Isolate call flows for a given connection ID (ConnID) or domain name (DN)
  • Graph a call flow across multiple log files
  • Identify all error or warning messages in a log file
  • Drill down on a specific event or message to see detailed information
  • Highlight any text in a log file and right-click to search the Genesys Knowledge Base for solutions related to that text
Log Analysis is a resource-intensive functionality due to parsing of data. If the utilized memory in the Workbench Server host is approaching exhaustion, you will receive a notification on the bottom right of the Log Analysis browser window. Opening more files at this time may result in substantial performance degradation for all Workbench users.
  • You can click on the Clear Display (trash can) icon Trash can.png to purge all files currently open in Log Analysis and start a new session.
  • It can take some time to index and process a log file for analysis. While the file is being processed, you will see a “spinner” indicator.

When the processing of a log file has completed, the Log Analysis console shows a list of events in that log file.
