Different log files are used to keep track of what is happening with the various compilations. There are 3 main log files

  1. Session Log - Stores the details of the job flow, from start to end. It excludes any build information for each strategy.
  2. Strategy Log - Also referred to as the “revision log”, it logs information of each FPGA tool process during its compilation.
  3. InTime Server Log - Information on the InTime Server.

Locating Log Files

An easy way to locate the log files is to use the menu option with the InTime GUI. Simply right-click on any result, and choose "Manage Logs", then "More Options".

The different types of logs will be displayed with the exact file paths. For more information about the types of files generated by InTime, please refer to the documentation.

1. Session log

When InTime is running, a brief version of the log can be seen in the window above. Unless you are using InTime with a custom_session_path argument, the full session log is typically located at


Another way to view the session log again, click on “File -> Open Session Log”. The system’s default text editor should open the file automatically, unless the system does not have a text editor configured or installed.

Note that the session log may be refreshed or cleared, e.g. when you open a new project etc. The old log file will be renamed as "intime_<date stamp>.log".

2. Strategy Log

Strategy log (or sometimes referred to as the “Revision log”) contains information about each compilation and the vendor toolchain. The log file is normally located at

 <project directory>/plunify.job/<jobid>/<strategy name>.log

Click on a revision, right-click and select “Open Strategy Log File”. The system default text editor should open the file automatically.

3. InTime Server log (Private Cloud setup)

The InTime Server log contains information on the InTime Server process. It is located in <InTime Server installation directory>/logs/intimeserver.yyyy-MM-dd.log.
