Logging is configured in the "ZyLAB.Analytics.Service.exe.config" file (typically located in \\Program Files\ZyLAB\ZyLAB Analytics Server\Services\bin) and in addition in the "Web.config" file located in: \\Program Files\ZyLAB\ZyLAB Analytics Server\Webroot.
The log files can also be accessed from the Analytics Server User Interface on the Show log page.
