Checking Reporting Services Log Files
SQL Server 2000
A report server uses a variety of log files to record information about server operations and status. The following logs contain report sever information:
- The Microsoft Windows Application log contains information about report server events.
- Windows Performance logs contain report server performance data. You can create performance logs, and then choose counters that determine which data to collect. For more information, see Monitoring Performance.
- Report Server execution log contains data about specific reports, including when a report was run, who ran it, where it was delivered, and which rendering format was used.
- Reporting Services trace logs contain very detailed information that is useful if you are debugging an application or investigating an issue or event.
- Log files are also created during Setup. If Setup fails or succeeds with warnings or other messages, you can examine the log files to troubleshoot the problem. For more information, see Log Files Used During Installation.
