TT Logging Documentation



Autospreader® logging is done via standard TT logging processes on the X_TRADER® workstation. Thus, log files are written to the <root drive:>ttlogfiles directory on the X_TRADER® workstation and named according to the convention: autospreader_DDMMYYYY.log (where DD is the two-digit day, MM is the two-digit month, and YYYY is the four-digit year).

Log Parameters

By default, Autospreader ® logs at logging level 3. You can change the logging level of Autospreader® to any of the following data values, which you set in the registry key called Log Autospreader Activity:

  • 0: No Autospreader® logging, no log file created
  • 1: Basic logging of high level Autospreader® actions, which occur only in the Audit Trail, no log file created. By default, Autospreader® installs with a logging level of 1.
  • 2: Additional information, log file created
  • 3: Detailed information, log file created
  • 4: More detailed level of information, log file created
  • 5: Highest level of detail, log file created

Each subsequent level of logging includes all information from the previous level.


If you select a logging level greater than 1, the Audit Trail continues to display level 1 info only. TT writes the additional detail to the log file.
