ULS in Project Server 2010 : Event Log vs. Trace Log RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Question from a non-English speaking newbie: what is the difference between the Event Log and the Trace Log in the Diagnostic Logging page (Central admin) 2010?

  • The event log is what you can view with the Event viewer. It can also contain events from other sources besides Project Server and SharePoint.

    A trace log contains only information on your specific product, in this case Project Server and SharePoint.

    When troubleshooting I always start with the event logs in the Event viewer and use a trace log for more detailed information
