Monitoring directory

Web services monitoring data is written to monitoring data (.dat) files in a monitoring directory. You can set the location of this directory.

The default location for the monitoring directory is appdata/monitoring, where appdata is the GAS application data directory.

Use the DATA_DIRECTORY element to specify a different location. When selecting a directory, ensure you have adequate disk space. The data directory must not be a network directory, to ensure concurrent access between gwsproxy writing to the directory and gasadmin reading from the directory.

Important: Sensitive and personal data may be written to the output. Make sure the output files can only be read by administrators. Review your strategy for managing and monitoring files.

The GAS creates one directory per running session. The directory name is taken from the session id. The data is stored in monitoring data (.dat) files.
