Virtual Terminal Journal

You can view the virtual terminal's journal to control its operation.

Requesting the Journal from the Virtual Terminal

In the newly opened log window, you can set a piece of text the journal entries are to be filtered by and a desired interval. After that, click Request to download the found logs. Here you can also select the journal type:

  • Terminal – logs about all events taking place in the terminal including trade operations.
  • Experts – data on Expert Advisor and indicator operation.

Viewing Journal logs

The virtual terminal's logs are updated during each request and saved to [terminal data folder]\logs\hosting.*.terminal\.

If a user requests too many records, then only part of the first logs for the specified period will be downloaded. This prevents performance degradation resulting from large logs. If you want to download further logs, you don't need to change the request period. Simply select the last line in the log viewer window and press PgDn.

Stopping the Server

Stopping the server means the temporary shutdown of the virtual terminal. This action is similar to closing the terminal on PC. It is performed by Stop Server "Stop Server" command in the server context menu of the Navigator window.

To launch the terminal, execute Start Server "Start Server" command.

Canceling the Hosting

Hosting cancelation means the virtual server is no longer provided and the virtual terminal is completely deleted with all data moved to it during the migration

No refund is made. The rental pay can be returned only within 24 hours after the virtual server has been registered.

To cancel the hosting, execute Cancel Hosting "Cancel Hosting" command in the server context menu of the Navigator window.
