Log files

Tekla Structures writes information to log files when you, for example, number a model or save a model.

File

Description

The client log contains two log files with the maximum size of 1 megabyte, so that the information will not use too much disk space. When the maximum file size is reached in the ClientLog_cat.txt file, log writing is switched to the ClientLog_dog.txt file, and the other way around. Each time the client log file is switched, any information previously saved in the current log file is cleared before any new log information is written into the log file.
