GeoMedia WebMap Administrator Guide

GeoMedia WebMap

The Administration Console allows you to set various parameters for logging by selecting the Logging tab in the Engines Management > GeoMedia WebMap > System Settings section.


You can specify a log level number that governs what events, if any, are logged by the software. You can choose the Disabled, Normal, or Detailed logging options.

Any level other than Disabled will create a log file associated with each output map file created. The meaning of the various log level options is as follows:

Disabled = No logging

Normal = Logging of errors.

Detailed = Logging of errors, entry and exit events, and all significant processing events.

Generally speaking, you should set the logging level to Disabled if you are not experiencing problems with your web application. If you are experiencing errors and require the assistance of Intergraph Software Support, you should set the logging level to Detailed and send the log file to Hexagon Geospatial Support for analysis.


You must create a log file directory for the product. The log file directory contains log files that are optionally generated by the software, based on the Log Level setting. The log files contain messages that log events as each request is processed.

The log files bear the same unique name as the output file that is being created by the software, but with the .GWMlog file extension.


You can specify the length of time that log files persist before being automatically deleted by the software. The default Log cleanup interval value is 15 minutes. If you want to preserve a log files for use in diagnosing problems or to forward to Hexagon Geospatial Software Support, you must remember to set the log cleanup interval to a long enough time for you to review and make copies of the log files. If you fail to make a copy in a different directory, the log files will eventually be deleted and lost.

Create folder if does not exist

Check Create folder if does not exist option if you want to create the directory if the directory does not already exist.
