Logging options for an interface allow for configuration of logs that can be used to diagnose problems with interfaces.
HL7Connect tracks errors associated with interfaces. The error counts are shown on the status page for the interface until the service or interface, but the full details can only be seen in the error log.
If this is selected, HL7Connect will store a detailed log of how long it takes to process the message, with each step listed in ms. This is really only useful when benchmarking script execution, or troubleshooting message acknowledgement problems. The performance data is available when looking at in the Message/Document Browser.
Every interface created in HL7Connect will either send and receive HL7 messages/acknowledgements or send or receive CDA documents. These messages and acknowledgements can be logged to assist with troubleshooting and developing HL7Connect interfaces.
Depending on the interface mode (incoming or outgoing) and content type (v2 messages of CDA documents), you can specify what to capture during the receive/send process.
|Remote Message/Document Logging||Captures messages & documents received from a remote system by an incoming HL7Connect interface|
|Local Response Logging||Captures replies (HL7 acknowledgements) sent to the remote system by the incoming HL7Connect interface, acknowledging the message received (HL7 v2 messages only)|
|Database||By default, HL7Connect discards responses from destination systems (they are usually very boring ACK messages). They can be logged using the Remote Response logging below, but this isn't always convenient. If this option is selected, HL7Connect will store the response messages received along with the message in the database, and they can be viewed through the Message/Document Browser|
|Local Message/Document Logging||Captures messages & documents sent to the remote system by the HL7Connect outgoing interface|
|Remote Response Logging||Captures replies (HL7 acknowledgements) received back to the HL7Connect outgoing interface by the remote receiving system, that acknowledge receipt of the messages sent by HL7Connect|
|Logging Policy|| Determines the type of logging policy applied to messages.
The following values are defined:
|Log File name||If a logging policy is chosen, a valid filename must be used. The file must reside on the server which contains HL7Connect. The log file name can include calculated Log file names|
|File Size Limit||in MB. Limits the size of the log file.
NOTE: Putting a value in this box is recommended to stop logs filling the available server disk space.
|When File is Full||
