A link monitor log is a written record of recent connection problems. It includes all information that the link monitor displays such as time stamps, alerts, warnings, notifications, and dates and times when connections started, slowed, or stopped. The short history available in the log can be a useful addition to the data you are gathering about connection problems. You can view the information in the log file by using any text editor or word processing application.
There is one log for each link monitor, even if the link monitor sends ping messages to more than one server. It is available even if the link monitor is not operating.
You can set the log file name and path in the link monitor General property page when the link monitor is configured. The log file name can be read from any computer running the Administrator program that is logged on to a server in the site, even remotely.
The following is an example of a section from a link monitor log file.
