HTTP/TCP proxy logs

To help you troubleshoot HTTP/TCP proxy problems, a number of logging methods are available for the HTTP/TCP proxy.

Use these logs to troubleshoot problems with the HTTP/TCP proxy. For more information, see Troubleshooting the HTTP/TCP proxy.

HCL Quality Server activity log
Logs high-level messages to the Activity log page in the Administration page.
To set the initial log level for the HTTP/TCP proxy, change the logger property in the registration.xml file. For more information, see Modifying the configuration settings of the HTTP/TCP proxy.
To change the log level of the proxy while it is running, go to the Infrastructure Dashboard in HCL Quality Server, click the Log Level field for the proxy, and select a value from the list.
You can filter the activities based on the log level that are displayed under the Activities section.
HCL Quality Server diagnostic log
Logs more detailed messages to the Diagnostic log page on the Administration page. The log is disabled by default. When the log is enabled, it contains the same information as the java.util.logging file in a format that you can access through HCL Quality Server. For more information, see Viewing the diagnostic log and Enabling and disabling remote diagnostic logging for the HTTP/TCP proxy.
java.util.logging (JUL) log file
Logs detailed messages to a user-specified location.
You can set the file location and logging level in the file. The default log file location is install/logs/proxy-n.log, where install is the base installation folder of the proxy server, typically the httptcp directory in the server installation directory.
When the proxy runs as a Windows service, additional log files are created in the logs directory related to the service wrapper.
To see any changes you make to the properties file, you must restart the HTTP proxy.
Note: You can run the proxy from the command line or as a service. In case you are running it as a service, use file logging to capture the logs.
