Navigating the Log Output

The log can contain much information, even in the scenario where the printer successfully connects to the remote server. This section explains how to read the log and highlights some of the key entries that will help to determine if the connection was successful.
A typical log entry looks as follows:
[12-04-2012 14:57:10.625] [http] Attempting connection to http://www.examplecorpinc.com/alerts.php
The first column is the date and time that the event occurred. The format of the date and time matches the format of
rtc.date
and
rtc.time
. The time, however, also includes the milliseconds to aid in troubleshooting network latency concerns.
The second column indicates the connection name, which is currently always set to
‘http’
.
The third column is the actual message that contains information about what occurred in the printer at the corresponding time in column one. In the above example the printer was attempting to POST the alert to the connection to the URL specified in the configured alert.
