Details provided in background processing logs

Updated on April 5, 2022

Pega Platform provides log categories specific to background processing. With these categories, you can diagnose and troubleshoot issues related to job schedulers, queue processors, and agents.

Background processing log categories provide detailed logs for the following areas:

  • Job schedulers — For managing recurring tasks in your Pega application. For more information, refer to the Job scheduler FAQ and Job Scheduler rules.
  • Queue processors — For queue management and asynchronous messenger processing. For more information, refer to the Queue processor FAQ and Queue Processor rules.
  • Agents — This older generation of background processing capabilities which was replaced with job schedulers and queue processors. For more information, refer to Agents rules
Note: For best performance and maintainability, configure job schedulers or queue processors instead of using agents in Pega Platform. For details, refer to Background processing best practices.

The requestor_lifecycle logger

You can enable the com.pega.TRACE.requestor_lifecycle logger to see information that is related to the requestor that is used by queue processor during an activity run. For more information, refer to Setting log levels for individual loggers.
