PageGate Logging Introduction Transcript
Welcome to the tutorial on how to configure the
Logging options in the PageGate Admin.
The first step is to run the PageGate Admin,
so go to your start menu, go to Programs, find
the PageGate program group, and left click on
Once in the admin, left click on the + next to
the Logging section and left click on settings.
In the logging settings, you'll see the following
If log to disk is checked, the program will write
the log files to the hard drive. If this is unchecked,
PageGate will not log anything.
Below that, we have Logging Level. More often
than not, you want to leave this on Debug, which
is the most detailed logging type. If you want,
though, you can have PageGate write the Detailed
log or keep only a brief summary of information
in its logs.
Next we have Archive Logs.
If this is enabled, PageGate will not purge old
data from the logs. Instead, every night at midnight,
during the nightly cleanup routine, it will create
a sub-directory that matches the day's date, then
move all of the old logs into that directory for
Below that we have Max Log Length. This is the
maximum number of characters any one given log
should store before purging out old data.
Next we have Use PG Monitor.
If this is checked, the program will post information
to the PageGate Monitor for review. This is highly
recommended as the PageGate Monitor is a good
way to keep track of what PageGate is doing.
Below that, we have the PG Monitor port. By default,
this is the custom port of 10101. This should
only be changed if you have a specific port that
the monitor must use.
Below that, you'll see the Monitor host slots.
Host0 is the local computer and can never be changed.
However, you can install the 'additional' monitor
on up to three different workstations.
Then, enter the machine name or IP address of
the workstation or workstations in the Host1,
2, or 3 slot to have PageGate broadcast the monitoring
information to those workstations.
Once you've set your preferences, left click
