View logged messages

This section describes how to view and work with logged messages.

To view logged messages:

  1. Prerequisite: Enable message logging for your virtual service. For details, see Manage services with SVM.
  2. In the Services tab, click the service name to show the service details.
  3. Click Show Service Logs. The message log opens in a new tab.

  4. Filter or search the messages using a keyword. You can filter messages by date, client address, status code, and message type (request/response).
  5. In the search results, use the right-click menu to delete a message or open a simulation report.

To export messages in bulk:

  1. In the message log, select the messages you want to export.
  2. Right-click and select Export Messages.
  3. In the Save to dialog box, select the location to save the messages. A .zip file is saved to that location containing individual files for each request and response. Each file includes both header and payload.
