Viewing the log file

You can view the log file at any time, either before or after you complete a search query of the file.


  1. From the Domino® Administrator, click the Server > Analysis tab.
  2. Select the server that stores the log file you want to view, and do one of the following:
    1. Open the log file (LOG.NSF) directly by clicking Notes Log.
    2. If you have just run a log analysis, click OK in the Log Analysis dialog box.
      The Log Analysis Results are displayed, and a copy of the results is stored in the Search Results view of the log file.
  3. Select the desired view; if you have just completed a search, select Search Results. Results are listed by starting time and server name. Select the results you want to view.
  4. Open the desired document; if you have just completed a search, select the results document you want.

What to do next

You can also view the search results from the Server > Analysis tab using the command Analyze > Log Document. This command gives you more details about the events listed in the current log document and allows you to sort the events in several different ways.
