Directory Extraction Logging and Performance

Last edited: 24 Oct 2005

The information in this article applies to product: e-Work 6.x


  • Directory extractions are running very slowly.


  • This may be caused by directory extraction logging. To see if logging is enabled, check the extraction.config file for text similar to the following:

    <setting key="loglevel" value="4"/><setting key="loglocation" value="C:\DEXLog.txt"/><setting key="logformat" value="tracefile"/>

    The loglevel can be set to a value of 0 - 4, with 4 being full logging. Because logging affects performance, it should only be enabled if a problem with the extraction needs to be investigated. See the Directory Extraction Suite Guide for more information.

  • Note that comments tags, <!-- -->, cannot be used inside the <settings> element. To disable logging, it is best to make a backup of the extraction.config file, then remove all references to logging from the <settings> element.

  • Although the Directory Integration Suite Guide explains logging configuration at a command line, logging can be enabled for extractions run interactively with the DEX interface by adding the above XML to an existing extraction.config file.

Post an example, and we will have a much better idea what the problem is. In about 90% of posts, the problem is one of communication. Examples bridge that gap.
