Crash Magic uses several methods for logging status and error messages while running. These include:
|•||Log table in the cmSys database|
At the time of this writing, only the XMLtoDB import process utilizes the Log table in the cmSys database. Most other log messages are written to the log files. The Windows Event Log is also used for those situations where the cmSys database can't be guaranteed to be available. (i.e. during system startup, shutdown and during errors related to writing to the system tables) Over time, all messages will be written to either the Windows Event Log or the cmSys database tables.
