Export Logs

This feature is only available to site administrators if an export directory was configured for the site during site creation.

Site administrators have the ability to export processed log files into a single compressed file that contains the daily logs for the specified date range. To export log files, click the workspace icon. Then click Export Logs in the nagivation pane.

Logs can be exported in any log file format, regardless of the original web server that initially created the log files. This means that, even if your site is hosted on a Windows server running IIS, you will be able to export your log files in an Apache format.

Depending on the amount of data in the site's log files, this page may take awhile to process. As a result, site administrators are limited to a 31-day date range per export.

Note: Cookies are not maintained in SmarterLogs; if this information is needed by the end user, they will need to maintain a backup of the original log files. SmarterLogs does keep the first cookie used in a session, but does not keep the subsequent cookies.
