By default, the SoftGrid Virtual Application Server logging file is located in the following location:

The following logging levels are available:
A higher logging level will log everything from lower logging levels. For example, a logging level of 3 will log Warnings, Errors, Fatal Errors and Transactions.

Method 2: Set a permanent logging level in the registryIf you do not want the logging level to be reset when the service or the server are restarted, you can set a permanent logging level in the registry. To do this, follow these steps.
Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that these problems can be solved. Modify the registry at your own risk.
Important When you set the logging levels to 5 or 6, the Sft-server.log file will grow large in a short time. This process can reduce server performance. Use logging levels 5 and 6 only when a support technician recommends them to diagnose specific server problems.
