I see in the Providor Policy section that you can enable client logging and that it forwards to the SGVAS... but how do I retrieve these logs?
I don't see them in the enterprise logging report.. nor do I see them on the SGVAS disk anywhere.
Hints??

I posted on SoftGridGuru about that feature and well... Nobody has answered. Maybe time to hit up the Technet board and ask for answers?

I got confirmation (on the MS Technet boards) that this feature was never fully implemented so basically there is a GUI but there isn't a back end reporting mechanism that sends any extra data to the VAS.

Looks like I got some bad info... I checked back on my test bed and there was some data in C:\Program Files\Softricity\SoftGrid Server\logs\client.log but it doesn't match the verbosity of the SoftGrid client log. I'm still trying to determine how useful this log is but you can centralize some reporting.

Hmm, does it put all the info for every client into one txt file? That seems a bit stupid. I was hoping it'd stick it in SQL so you could report on it.

If I turn the logging to verbose it doesn't seem to catch all the client's application launch errors so keep that in mind. The client's own log is far more useful when monitoring the infrastructure for overall health.

I'm working on something to put the log data into SQL for analysis but for real time analysis I'm not sure if I'll be there anytime soon. If you have Operations Monitor you could author a management pack and I think SoftGrid 4.5 is supposed to have a management pack from MS but who knows what that management pack will have.


Ooops forgot a link for making a management pack that reads text logs.

I wonder if Microsoft crippled that feature so they could help sell MOM. [;)]

They don't have MOM here, but I'll take a look at that in my lab when I get home. Cheers.

Making a management pack for a text file looks pretty involved so I am wondering if MS will put together something comprehensive for the client using MOM. If so that's great but its a bit of a pain point when you want real time monitoring of the SoftGrid client. I am not sure how desktop administrators feel but I know terminal server administrators would love launch errors to be reported in real time.
