Where to Find Log Files

Cloud Log Tables

ETL+ logs its loads and script runs on ETL+ cloud metadata tables. This allows users to retrieve their log anywhere and anytime ETL+ is connected to its cloud metadata (see section above).

Local Windows Server Log Files

DataSelf ETL+ creates log files in the Windows folder where ETL+ is installed, usually
C:\Users\Public\DataSelf Corp

Default Log Log <EntityID>.txt

The default log is named "Log <EntityID>.txt".

Debug Log Log <EntityID>_Debug.txt

A more detailed log created when debug mode is set to Level 1 or 2 (see ).
A second file named “Log <EntityID>_Debug.txt" contains more log details.

  • The debug log can grow very quickly when debug is set to Level 2.

Data Warehouse Log Tables

ETL+ also logs on the data warehouse tables below. This is the same information as presented on the ETL+ log page:

  • zLog_ETL

  • zLog_TableStats


Data Load and Running Scripts On-Screen Log

ETL+ logs on screen (see image) when executing the following tasks directly on the user interface:
- Table load
- Data source load
- Executing a Refresh Batch

1. Object Group: Blank if loading a single table. <Source Alias> when loading all tables from a data source. <Refresh Batch Name> when executing a Refresh Batch.

2. Progress Counter: Lists the current object number, the total objects to process, and percent progress.

3. Object currently processing: The name of the object currently processing. For some objects, it might provide additional information such as number of rows loaded.

4. List of Objects Executed: Lists all objects that have been executed and their status.

5. Data Warehouse Tables: Shows tables and their status such as rows loaded/replaced/updated/appended.

6. Tableau Extracts and other Scripts: Shows their names and status.
