The following table shows the location of some directories that may be needed to effectively work with LucidWorks Enterprise. These paths are all relative to the "LWE Home" directory ($LWE_HOME) which is specified when running the installer.
LucidWorks Enterprise records system activities to rolling log files located in the $LWE_HOME/logs directory of the installation. The table below describes the main purpose of the various log files.
|$LWE_HOME/logs/lucid.log||LWE Core operations|
|$LWE_HOME/logs/rails.log||Search, Admin, and Alerts operations|
|$LWE_HOME/logs/click-<collectionName>.log||User click data, for use in relevance boosting (if enabled)|
The LucidWorks Enterprise log is configured by a properties file ($LWE_HOME/conf/log4j.properties). The default is to archive each log every day at Midnight (server time). Additionally, LucidWorks Enterprise limits the number of logs that are archived to a configurable amount (default is to keep all logs). The archived log files are also found in the logs directory under the installation ($LWE_HOME/logs). Once logs are archived, data from archived log files is no longer included in query or index history calculations that appear in the Administration User Interface.
|Log Rotation on Windows|
On Windows machines, log rotation of the rails.log file only has been disabled. The other logs will rotate daily, but the rails.log will need to be manually rotated.
