Configuring Butler SOS logging
Butler SOS can send periodic heartbeat messages to a monitoring tool, which can then alert if Butler SOS hasn’t checked in as expected.
MandatoryThese settings are mandatory. They must exist in the config file and be correctly set for Butler SOS to work.
Butler SOS continuously logs what its doing.
The top level section
Butler-SOS in the config file has a set of settings that control logging and telemetry.
Log level (verbosity) can be set, logging to disk can be enabled/disabled etc.
For more information about telemetry, please see this page.
