Network Access Client Logging

  • Last updated on

Verbose output is essential for proper analysis. You can enable logging for both the Health Agent service and the Barracuda Access Monitor service to receive detailed information. Information for analysis, serialized by the Barracuda Network Access Client, is stored on the local hard drive if verbosity is enabled. These files can be found in the log directory located in the Barracuda Network Access Client installation directory.
