Managing log categories

Updated on July 8, 2022

From Admin Studio, you can select which log messages to write to your log files by associating log levels with your categories.

The log level of a category determines which messages are written to the log file. When you create a log category and set its default log level, these selections apply to all nodes in the cluster and they persist until you change them. The default log level applies to all the loggers that you associate with your category.

To view log categories, you must have the pzLogLevelObserver privilege, and to edit log categories, you must have the pzLogLevelAdministrator privilege.

  • Creating custom log categories

    Organize loggers into custom log categories to make managing loggers and log file messages easier. To organize loggers into custom log categories, you create the log category and then add loggers to the category.

  • Log levels for log categories

    You can select which log messages your log files include by creating custom log categories and associating log levels with your categories.
