Configuring default job log options
You can configure default options for job logs that specify the amount of detail you want to include in the completed job log. For jobs that produce large job logs, for example, a backup of a considerable number of separate files, you may want to reduce the amount of detail in the job log. The size of the job log increases proportionally to the level of detail configured for the job log.
To configure default job log options
On the Tools menu, click Options.
In the Properties pane, under Job Defaults, click Job Logs.
Select the appropriate options as follows:
Summary information only
Select this option to include the following:
Job log name
Media server name
Starting date and time
Ending date and time
This option also includes the name of files that were skipped, the media set name, the backup type and results of the verify operation if one was performed.
Summary information and directories processed
Select this option to include summary information and a list of all processed subdirectories.
Summary information, directories, and files processed
Select this option to include Summary information, processed subdirectories, and a list of all the filenames that were processed.
Summary information, directories, files and file details
Select this option to include Summary information, processed subdirectories, a list of all the filenames and their attributes.
Selecting this option increases the job log sizes significantly.
Prefix for the job log file name
Enter a prefix to prepend to the job logs that are processed. The default prefix is BEX.
The job log file name consists of Prefix_ServerName_Count, where Prefix is the label that you enter in this field, ServerName is the name of the media server that ran the job, and Count is the number of job logs that this job has produced.
