System log

System logs are a generic mechanism for exposing messages from
FactoryTalk Optix Studio
to monitor software execution flow and diagnose problems. The logs are issued both by
FactoryTalk Optix Runtime
FactoryTalk Optix Studio
The location of
FactoryTalk Optix Runtime
logs depends on the client device operating system:
  • Linux devices:
  • Windows devices:
    %localappdata%\Rockwell Automation\FactoryTalk Optix\Application\Log
During the
FactoryTalk Optix Studio
design phase, any log messages that occur appear in the bottom bar of
FactoryTalk Optix Studio
and are saved on the file system at the location
%localappdata%\Rockwell Automation\FactoryTalk Optix\Studio\Log
When you run the source project by starting your
FactoryTalk Optix Application
, you can monitor log events from both the local development computer and the client device on which the 
FactoryTalk Optix Runtime
application is deployed. The
FactoryTalk Optix Runtime
log events are displayed in the
FactoryTalk Optix Studio
user interface on a separate status tab with the name of the client device. These logs are also saved on the file system at these locations:
  • For projects started in a local emulation:
    %localappdata%\Rockwell Automation\FactoryTalk Optix\Emulator\Log\<Project name>
  • For projects started on a client device:
    %localappdata%\Rockwell Automation\FactoryTalk Optix\Studio\LogDevice\<Devicename>
