The following backup files are created: connect_catalina.log and service_status.log.  

  • The connect_catalina.log contains all logged events for the Alteryx Connect server.
  • Only the last 1 MB of the connect_catalina.log is displayed. The older versions of the log are stored on the server.
  • No logs are overwritten. 
  • Backup files older than 30 days are deleted. This is done via logback.xml configuration file. 
  • There is no size limit on the backup file size. 
  • Log settings can be directly changed in the path C:\Program Files\AlteryxConnect\webapps\ROOT\WEB-INF\classes\logback.xml.  
  • Daily backups are created with the file pattern connect_catalina-{year-month-day}.log.  
  • CopyTomcatLogJob is executed every 5 minutes to append the existing Tomcat logs (connect.out) to connect_catalina.log
  • There is no backup policy defined for service_status.log
