System logs are a generic mechanism for exposing messages from
FactoryTalk Optix Studioto monitor software execution flow and diagnose problems. The logs are issued both by
FactoryTalk Optix Runtimeand
FactoryTalk Optix Studio.
The location of
FactoryTalk Optix Runtimelogs depends on the client device operating system:
- Linux devices:/persistent/log/Rockwell_Automation/FactoryTalk_Optix
- Windows devices:%localappdata%\Rockwell Automation\FactoryTalk Optix\Application\Log
FactoryTalk Optix Studiodesign phase, any log messages that occur appear in the bottom bar of
FactoryTalk Optix Studioand 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 Runtimeapplication is deployed. The
FactoryTalk Optix Runtimelog events are displayed in the
FactoryTalk Optix Studiouser 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>
