LOGalyze Engine contains its configuration in XML files and in an embedded SQL database. General configurations and Definitions are in XML files, while user related settings are in the embedded database.

Configuration files (Engine)

Configuration files are in the 'conf' directory and its subdirectories under $LOGALYZE_HOME.

Note that in the installation package config files have .sample extension to avoid overwriting running configurations.

LOGalyze Admin is packaged as a Web Archive (WAR) file, so the configuration of LOGalyze Admin is under the WEB-INF directory.

LOGalyze Repository

Repository is a central place of commonly used Definition configurations. It contains all kind of Definitions: Log, Event, Query, Report, Statistic. (See LOGalyze Concepts and Definitions)

Downloaded files from central repository are in conf/repository folder. Naming convention for these files is: <UUID>.xml, where UUID is the ID of the Definition.

User related settings

The user related configuration settings, such as preferences are stored in an embedded relational database. The only way to manage these settings is doing within the Admin.
