Access to the Logging page depends on your license. For more information, refer to What modules and features are available depending on your license.

Note

If you want to collect and display logs from Data Integration, ESB, or MDM in an external Elastic stack, refer to the Talend Installation Guide for more information.

Prerequisites:

  • The Kibana Web application is deployed in the Tomcat server and the application URL is set up in the Monitoring node of the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center. For more information, see Setting up the link to the Monitoring modules and the Talend Installation Guide. As Kibana is combined with Elasticsearch, you can visit its website to get more information on this application.

    Note

    Kibana is not supported on IE11.

  • The Technical log file path field is correctly set up in the Logging node of the Configuration page of Talend Administration Center. For more information, see Setting up the Logging parameters.

Displaying the time-stamped log events

  • In the Menu tree view, click Logging to display the corresponding page.

    The default dashboard of the logging module displays graphically the events and classifies them according to the log threshold defined on the Configuration page.

    In the Middleware Navigation panel, you can switch to other pre-configured dashboards by clicking the corresponding link. The available dashboards are:

    • Default Dashboard: this dashboard gathers the logs related to Data Integration events (Talend Administration Center web application activity, servers, and so on), and to MDM events (the logs related to matching and logs collected from the MDM server).

      By default, these MDM logs are activated if you installed Talend Log Server via Talend Installer. If you installed it manually, you need to uncomment MDM-related appenders in the <INSTALLDIR>/conf/log4j.xml file. For more information, see the Talend Installation Guide.

    • ESB Dashboards: there are three dashboards available for ESB.

      • ESB Events

        This dashboard gathers the logs related to ESB events, that is to say all logs from the Talend Runtime container (Jobs, Routes, and so on) and the OSGi events generated by the Talend Runtime (information about bundles). For more information, see the Talend ESB Infrastructure Services Configuration Guide.

      • ESB Locator Endpoints

        This dashboard gathers the logs related to the Locator endpoint and service availability. For more information, see the Talend ESB Infrastructure Services Configuration Guide.

      • ESB SAM

        This dashboard gathers the logs related to the Service Activity Monitoring. For more information, see the Talend ESB Infrastructure Services Configuration Guide.

Note that you can adapt the dashboard to your needs by adding/removing filters (Filters panel), display specific events by playing with dates (Time Picker panel) and zooming on specific events (Timeline panel), you can also change the log severity at any time in the Logging node of the Configuration page. When you change this level, the data displayed in the Logging page is reloaded accordingly and you can navigate easily between the logged events.
