AdminStudio - Information viewed in the log files if the DebugLogLevel is set to '5' in the registry entry

Question:

What are the detailed information one can see in the log file if the DebugLogLevel is set to '5' in the registry entry. 

Answer:

By default, the DebugLogLevel will be set to '0' once AdminStudio is installed.

To capture the detailed logs set the DebugLogLevel to '5' in the below mentioned registry entry

Regedit>HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\InstallShield\AdminStudio>DebugLogLevel.

After setting the DebugLogLevel to '5' restart the AdminStudio host process and the application.

Now the user should able to see detailed information like 'Errors', 'Warnings', 'Info' and 'Debug'.

NOTE: ISCMIDE.log, AdminStudio Host.log and AdminStudio.log files helps to store the information performed in the AdminStudio IDE.

Debug - Information that is diagnostically helpful to people (IT, sysadmins, etc.) to debug an application.

Info - Generally useful information to log (service start/stop, configuration assumptions, etc). Designates informational messages that highlight the progress of the application at coarse-grained level.

Warn - Anything that can potentially cause application oddities, but for which automatically recovering. (Such as switching from a primary to backup server, retrying an operation, missing secondary data, etc.)

Error - Any error which is fatal to the operation, but not the service or application (can't open a required file, missing data, etc.). These errors will force user (administrator, or direct user) intervention. These are usually reserved for incorrect connection strings, missing services, etc.

It is recommended to set the DebugLogLevel to '5' to gather more info in the log files during troubleshooting of an issue.
