    Understanding server log files

    UMA RAMESH

      Is there an easy way to decipher the error log files generated by Tableau server processes?

      I am trying to read them.

       

      Secondly is there a single repository of all error messages seen in Tableau?

          Hi Uma!

           

          Tableau Server's log files are primarily intended for Tableau Technical Support to use when troubleshooting specific problems. The range and complexity of possible issues with Tableau Server means that there is no simple process you can use to investigate all problems, but a general approach is included in the Product Help for Tableau Server here: Work with Log Files

           

          Is there a specific issue you're looking to troubleshoot, or are you wanting to set up performance monitoring for Tableau Server?
