Increase the log level to Debug

In the ADVMAIN logger rule, change the minlevel value from "Info" to "Debug".

If you increase the log level to Debug, the application generates numerous entries, that can increase the log file size. For efficiency, the application archives the file when it reaches the 10MB size limit and saves it at the specified path. The name format for the archived log file is Smart P&ID-[yyyy_MM_dd_HH_mm_ss].log. For example, Smart P&ID-2024_04_23_15_30_32.log

Can I customize the enhanced log filename and path?

Yes, you can customize both the filename and path of the enhanced log file and its archive file. In the AdvMainLog <target> element, change the folder and default values for the fileName and archiveFilename attributes.
