Sometimes something goes wrong with a logs upload, bot hits are abnormally low, or regular trends in Crossed Analysis look unusual. In these cases, you can check for yourself what is going on using OnCrawl's Log Manager Tools.

These tools are available from the project home page, at the top right of the screen, under Tasks. Click on "LOG MANAGER TOOLS".

Here can follow the processing of uploaded log files. 

What kind of information is available?

In this tool, we expose a lot of important information:

"OnCrawl Activity" shows information about the steps in processing your files. First, OnCrawl reads the files and then exports data. You will have access to all data when the export process is completed.

The second part of the tool displays graphs showing the history of uploads, parsing, and processing.

On the first row, you can daily follow the number and quality of uploaded files. On the second row, you can follow ok lines and errors lines.

The last part of the tool returns an explorable data table with information each file. It contains the file name, date of upload, and information about the number of analyzed lines, filtered lines, and lines with errors. It also lists the file status.

You can click on the name of the file to see samples of each type of line for the file. This helps you quickly understand the data available in OnCrawl from that file.

How to check logs upload health?

It's important to keep an eye on the trends in the log monitoring metrics. File sizes and bot hits/SEO visits should follow a regular line or curve, and there should be few erroneous lines.

You should not have warning in the processing status column.

You should also pay attention to any spikes in the graphics for "Lines unprocessed: errors" and "Files unprocessed: errors".
