Server logging in Nimble Streamer

As any server software, Nimble Streamer allows tracking its behavior and performance via logging.

By default, Nimble Streamer server logs are available in /var/log/nimble.log for Linux and in application log folder for Windows. However you can control that in a config file. Read this article to see how you can define destination for your logs.

You may also choose logging level for server information via web UI. The more detailed logging is selected, the more information you'll get as output.

All settings are applied without server restart which allows easily manage its behavior depending on your needs.



Go to Servers menu and then click on the name of the server which you need to make changes for.



In server details page, click on Edit to see the following page.


Here you can see Log mode drop-down selector. It has the following values:

  • error - this is the default mode, it writes down only errors
  • info - gives information from "error" mode plus general information about server work
  • verbose - adds more details on top of "info" mode output
  • debug - most detailed output.

We recommend enabling debug log mode in case you want to contact our support team.

As was mentioned earlier, all settings are applied dynamically without server restart.
