The DATA_DIRECTORY element specifies the directory used to store Web services monitoring data.


  1. path specifies the path to the Web services monitoring directory.

The DATA_DIRECTORY element does not support any attributes or have any child elements.

Child elements

There are no child elements.


Use the DATA_DIRECTORY to configure the location of Web services monitoring, where data files may be accessed. By default, the DATA_DIRECTORY entry is not set and the monitoring files are stored in the resource $(res.path.monitoring), which resolves to appdata/monitoring, where appdata refers to GAS application data directory.

It is important that you use a local directory on your GAS server and not a network directory for this data to avoid any issues with concurrent access. For monitoring data this is an important consideration.

Usage example


Parent elements
