Global options include log file options and real-time options:

Although it can be useful to continue logging for a day or more to help troubleshoot an intermittent problem, we recommend that you not run real-time monitoring for more than an hour at a time.

We also recommend that you not use Logger Tool for ongoing monitoring. Turning on logging for an extended time for servers in a production environment can affect server performance.

For details about monitoring and troubleshooting, see the Office Communications Server 2007 R2 documentation at .

  1. Open Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Logging Tool, New Debug Session.

    • Under Log File, in Type, click the type of log file you want to use.
