Why no or only few logs are displayed from the device?

If you do not see any or only a few logs from your device, the settings on your device may be the cause.


For PLCnext control, you can set the level of logs to be transferred in the following file:

/opt/plcnext/projects/Default/Services/ProfiCloudV3/ProfiCloudV3.config
/opt/plcnext/projects/Default/Services/ProfiCloudV3/ProfiCloudV3.config
/opt/plcnext/projects/Default/Services/ProfiCloudV3/ProfiCloudV3.config

We recommend to use “INFO” as level, since then you get most information from the devices. There might another change required in another file.

/etc/plcnext/Device.log.ini
/etc/plcnext/Device.log.ini
/etc/plcnext/Device.log.ini

Please restart the controller after your changes.
