Event log

By default, events that occur while the Database Server is running are logged and timestamped. Typical events that are logged include:

  • Database Server starting or stopping
  • database files opened and closed by the Database Server
  • consistency checks performed on files that were not closed properly
  • new, completed, upcoming, and currently running schedules
  • the reason an enabled schedule was not successful
  • scripting errors from FileMaker script schedules
  • predefined errors and conditions that the Database Server detects in your configuration
  • current properties settings when the Database Server starts up, and settings that were changed during a Database Server session
  • startup restoration status and information about databases that were restored

Events are logged in the tab-delimited Event.log file that is created in the FileMaker Server/Logs/ folder.
