View the Barracuda DC Agent Logs

To view the Barracuda DC Agent logs, click the Log tab. When you receive errors for the Barracuda DC Agent, the log files can help you find the source of the error.

All logging information for the Barracuda DC Agent is stored in the DCDebug.txt file that is located in the C:\Program Files\Barracuda directory. The Barracuda DC Agent creates a new log file daily or when the existing log file exceeds 1 MB in size (whichever comes first). Only the last ten log files are kept on the system. After the tenth log is created, the first log file is overwritten with new data, and so on. For this reason, it is important to view the time stamp on log files to determine which file contains the latest data.
