The Logging Options section allows you to enable logging for all Safeguard Authentication Services Windows components. This setting only applies to the local computer. Logging can be helpful when trying to troubleshoot a particular problem. Because logging causes components to run slower and use more disk space, you should set the Log Level to Disabled when you are finished troubleshooting.
To enable debug logging for all Safeguard Authentication Services Windows components
- Open Control Center and click Preferences on the left navigation pane.
- Expand the Logging Options section.
- Open the Log level drop-down menu and set the log level to Debug.
Debug generates the most log output. Higher levels generate less output. You can set the Log level to Disabled to disable logging.
- Click to specify a folder location where you want to write the log files.
Safeguard Authentication Services Windows components log information into the specified log folder the next time they are loaded. Each component logs to a text file named after the DLL or EXE that generates the log message.
