AFAIK you should still see some statistics even though you haven't configured the database to store it.
Might it be some weird error in the episerverlog.config file? See if you can configure it to do a normal log.
Logging in general works fine. I have a file logger for the Warn level which correctly appends to a text file.
Me and Dean had a troubleshoot session and found out this:
<EPiServer:LogGenerator runat="server" ID="PixelImg" /> was missing from the master page.
No C:\temp directory was present, this is a must as it is there we store the statistics file.
The connectionstring in the C:\Program Files\EPiServer\Shared\Services\Log Service was incorrect.
Yeah, just to follow up on Tobias's comment. I had at least three show-stopping problems:
Once I fixed all this, I was in business. (Also: Tobias rules. That is all.)
I'm trying to configure the Statistics service, but not having much luck. Nothing is logging, and the Statistics tab gives me:
"The log service is not configured with a database. Saved history will not be shown."
I have confirmed that the StatisticsUdpAppender is enabled in the log file. It's logging to UDP 7071 on localhost. I have confirmed that the log service is also configured to 7071, and Netstat tells me something is bound to that port.
The log service config file has a valid connection string -- it's the same one from the site, so I know it works.
Where do I go from here?
