Cisco Agent Desktop Logs

Logs include listings of Cisco Agent Desktop events and errors. These events can represent actions taken by a Desktop application, implications of user-defined configuration settings, or limitations of the hardware. The error codes are brief descriptions of the events.

Cisco Agent Desktop can keep debug logs and is disabled by default. Edit the fastcalllocal.ini and supervisor.ini files to enable this capability. The number represents the highest level. All levels below the level specified are written to the debug files when you set the level. Only the numbers specified are written to the debug files when the range is set. The performance of the application is affected if you do not set the level of the debug to the default level after the information is gathered in the debug files.

Note: Section 4 of Service Information Cisco Desktop Product Suite 4.5.5 (ICD) covers details of logs and error code for Cisco Agent Desktop.

Cisco CallManager Logs
