Working with Output Log Files
Each time you generate output for a target,ePublisher creates a log file named generate.log and writes the following information to the log file:
*Time when output generation began
*Actions and commands ePublisher performed, such as processing, creating and copying files
*Pipelines processed by ePublisher
*Any messages, warnings, or errors generated by ePublisher when ePublisher generated output for the target
*Time when output generation ended
*Total amount of time it took ePublisher to generate the output
