Multiple servers

Mar 3, 2011 at 4:16 PM

How does this work if there are multiple servers in the farm? Does it search all trace log file locations?

Good question!

At this moment it uses the SPUtility.GenericSetupPath to retrieve the log files in the 14 folder.

I received the feedback to move the custom action link to the CA site, I could add the functionality to select the server in the farm where the log files should be read from.

What do you guys think?

Definately, it would be great to be able to pick the server that you wish to view the logs on for those multi server farms.

Could you use the C# equivalent of Merge-SPLogFile to compile a view of log events with that correlation ID from all servers?

+1 for me! I have 2 front and 1 app server.
