Logging is a critical component of any enterprise-grade application. Logging ensures data is captured for analysis of a wide range of operations and activity, from troubleshooting installation to tracking user activity. 

Semarchy xDM platform utilizes Apache Log4j to log its activity. The application has preconfigured logging which covers  many mission-critical data points, and supports the ability to extend/expand logging directly through the UI for Semarchy administrators with the required access and permissions. 

Apache Log4j is highly customizable, and is typically used in conjunction with (not a replacement for) OS and database level logging methods. For more details on understanding Semarchy logging, including key concepts, log levels and terminology, refer to our official documentation here.
