Kaspersky Security Center Web Console activity logging can help to investigate the causes of a software malfunction. When you contact Kaspersky Technical Support about a Kaspersky Security Center Web Console malfunction, Kaspersky Technical Support specialists can request Kaspersky Security Center Web Console log files from you. Kaspersky Security Center Web Console log files are stored in the <Kaspersky Security Center Web Console installation folder>/logs folder the entire time you use the application. Log files are not sent to Kaspersky Technical Support specialists automatically.

To enable Kaspersky Security Center Web Console activity logging,

Select the Enable logging of Kaspersky Security Center Web Console activities check box in the Kaspersky Security Center Web Console connection settings window of the Kaspersky Security Center Web Console setup wizard.

The log files are in text format.

The log file names are in the format logs-<component name>.<device name>-<file revision number>.YYYY-MM-DD, where:

  • <component name> is the name of the Kaspersky Security Center component or is the Kaspersky Security Center Web Console management plug-in name.
  • <device name> is the name of the device on which the <component name> is running.
  • <file revision number> is the number of the log file created for the <component name> that is in operation on the <device name>. Within one day, several log files for the same <component name> and <device name> can be created. The maximum size of a log file is 50 megabytes (MB). When the maximum file size is reached, a new log file is created. A new log file <file revision number> is incremented by 1.
  • YYYY, MM, and DD are the year, month, and day when the log was first created. When a new day starts a new log file is created.
