Web Analytics logs are empty

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 09, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

The situation is similar to this post (http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010general/thread/790b0068-1815-4278-a5e9-32204b3a41c7).

I configured Web Analytics application service to C:\SPLOG directory.
Some of the log files like an upgrading log are created normally. But web analytics logs are created without any contents. All are 0 KB.

Considering of file permissions, I added EVERYONE's Full Control to the log directory. However nothing changed.

An somebody in the referenced post mentioned at the top of the article said changing a service account to localservice is working for the issue, but I do not want to change to local accounts.

Is anyone having same issue? If you sense some hints, please help me.

Thank you!

How to check for null/empty strings on dynamic objects?


What is the proper way to check for null or empty strings on dynamic objects? This is the only solution I've found so far:

if (admin.PasswordHash.GetType() == typeof(DBNull) || admin.PasswordHash == string.Empty)

If the field is null, the object returned is DBNull.Value, but if the field is empty string, it's return as a System.String object. This makes it impossible to do regular "admin.PasswordHash == DBNull.Value" check, as that will fail whenever the field has been set to empty string. Is my example the right (and only) way to go?

Toolbox: Generate Office Documents, Monitor Event Logs, and More


Most data-driven Web sites are used as interfaces to collect, process, and summarize information. Reports that summarize the data can be presented to the user in a variety of formats-the most common way is to display the report directly in a Web page.

Office: Relive the Moment by Searching Your IM Logs with Custom Research Services


Often, IM conversations contain important information you'd like to keep and reuse. Fortunately, MSN Messenger 6.2 has a feature to keep a conversation history permanently in XML format. This article shows you how to leverage that conversation history by consolidating IM exchanges so they are indexed, searchable, and ultimately reusable using the Microsoft Office 2003 Research and Reference task pane.

Add an empty line in Gridview on specific dayofweek


Hey all,

Havin quite a bit of trouble with this one.  I have a bunch of days that I worked in my database...mostly monday-friday and some saturdays.  What I want the gridview to do is add an empty line between each sunday and monday so that it seperates out my work weeks and makes it easier to read in the gridview.  I got some help here a few days ago on how to clone the db etc and I have all that working properly but I can't seem to wrap my head around how to do add these empty lines in the proper spots.  Here is my code so far:

private DataTable AddEmptyRow()
        DataTable originalDataTable = GetItems();
        DataTable newDataTable = originalDataTable.Clone();
        DateTime testdate = Convert.ToDateTime("7/20/2010");

            for (int i = 0; i < originalDataTable.Rows.Count; i++)
                DayOfWeek day = testdate.DayOfWeek;

                if (day == DayOfWeek.Sunday)
                    DataRow newDataRow = newDataTable.NewRow();



Empty Website Data Source windown


Hi all,

I am Visual Web Developer user and facing a problem when I am creating a local report (.rdlc) file.

I am using Business objects as the Data Source for this report. It was working perfectly until all the items in the Website Data Source window suddenly "disappeared". The "Add New Data Source" button on this window is also disabled. Now the window is just like a blank box only. And I can't continue working with the report file like this...

I have tried undoing what I did before but it does not help at all...

Any reason for this to happen? There is no sign or something at least indicating what is wrong.

Please help.


 ps: found a similar thread in this forum but not solved

'There is no Web named' in logs


I was wondering if anybody could help me.  When i look at logs in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\12\LOGS i get a lot of errors saying 'There is no Web named'.

For example:-
09/08/2008 09:29:37.17  w3wp.exe (0x1BA0)                        0x296C Windows SharePoint Services    General                        8kh7 High     There is no Web named "/quality/Audit Reports/Forms/AllItems.aspx". 

There are no errors in server application event log.  I was hoping to find out what this means and if i should worry about the errors.

Dropdown menu - Null or empty string??


I have drop dowm menu as follow.

<asp:ListItem Value="">none</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="STO">Stock</asp:ListItem>
<asp:ListItem Value="ORD">Order</asp:ListItem>

If I chose none, it stores data as "Null"

If I Query the data as below, I don't get the data has value of "Null"

SELECT tabale From type Where type <> STO or type <> ORD

I get data that has empty string but not Null.

Here is my question.

1, How do I write dropdown menu value in oder to get empty string instead of Null?
I did <asp:ListItem Value="">none</asp:ListItem> but this stores Null.

2, Why this Query won't pick up Null?
SELECT mytabale FROM type WHERE type <> STO or type <> ORD

Thank you for your help.

Sharing folders under 12\logs


Hi Admins, 

I have a general question.  developer team does not have direct access to server. But they frequently need to dig logs for errors. (yes we have a test server but when switched to prod. environment, programs sometimes give errors that are need to be digged in prod)

Is it ok to "share" the folder program files\common files\microsoft shared\web server extensions\12\logs folder, so they can map the Web front End's logs folder to their computers ?

I dont really think it sounds good to make a sharing on production server like this,it is a sort of customization, I need your advices. is there a significant disadvantage that causes "don't!!" for this kind of operation?


Thanks in advance..


Re-run WSS 3.0 Usage Analysis Logs


WSS3.0SP2, 64-bit.

The service which runs and collects the log files for the Usage Analysis report was disabled for some reason. We have it re-activated but the logs for when it was down were not processed. How do we re-process those older logs?

VS2005 calling VS2010 asmx service returns empty string


Anyone have any experience with this?

We are using VS 2005 for the front end, and vs 2010 for the web services part (asmx), not wcf yet.


Web service works just like the vs2005 when run locally, no problems.


Connecting to it from a test app returns an empty string. Connecting to a 2005 app doesn't!

Anyone run into this before or have a suggestion? Surely vs 2005 can connect to web services from a later version?
