Each Compass component maintains separate error and message log files. Compass core uses the TSlogger logging and tracing package to log errors and messages, and maintains a separate properties file,, to configure this utility.

Log files are created on the computer where the Compass software is installed. The log files capture a running history of fatal errors, errors, warnings, and optionally, informational messages. Use these log files to diagnose and troubleshoot known or potential issues.
