Display configuration log content

Feb 06, 2013

When initiating configuration changes and administrative activities, Citrix Studio and Citrix Director create high level operations, which are displayed in the upper portion of the center pane in Studio. A high level operation results in one or more service and SDK calls, which are low level operations. When you select a high level operation in the upper portion of the center pane, the lower portion of the center pane displays the low level operations.

If an operation fails before completion, the log operation might not be completed in the Database; for example, a start record will have no corresponding stop record. In such cases, the log indicates that there is missing information. When you display logs based on time ranges, incomplete logs are shown if the data in the logs matches the criteria. For example, if all logs for the last five days are requested and a log exists with a start time in the last five days but has no end time, it is included.

When using a script to call PowerShell cmdlets, if you create a low level operation without specifying a parent high level operation, Configuration Logging will create a surrogate high level operation.
