The Services log

The services log provides information concerning every transaction performed by Kofax ReadSoft Invoices services when using instances of Interpret and Transfer as services.

  • Module name - The name of the Kofax ReadSoft Invoices module to which the instance belongs (either Interpret or Transfer).
  • Start time - The time when the instance started.
  • End time - The time when the instance stopped.
  • Invoices processed - The number of invoices processed by the instance during the session.
  • Job priority - The priority number of the job.

  • The service log is not intended for long-term monitoring of production using Interpret and Transfer instances as services. It is intended to show the history of when instances were used as services and how they performed.
  • Service log messages are saved in the database and can only be removed using a database maintenance plan. Do this regularly to prevent the services log from becoming too large. A large log file can take a long time to open and cause problems with performance.
  • The recorded date and times are those for the Kofax ReadSoft Invoices server.
