Generating an exploitable log

For your log to be exploitable by the Orthanc community, you must generate them with the --verbose or --trace. If you are using Orthanc at the command-line, simply add these flags and redirect the standard outputs to some log file.

However, if you use packaged versions of Orthanc that runs the server in background, you will have to manually start Orthanc. The sections below explain how to achieve this goal with the officially supported packages.

Under Windows

Under Windows, if you used the official installer:

  1. Download the precompiled command-line version of Orthanc.

  2. Stop the Orthanc service. The actual process depends on your version of Windows.

  3. Copy the just-downloaded Orthanc-1.3.0-Release.exe together with your configuration file (that is by default located in C:\Orthanc\Configuration.json) into the same folder (e.g. C:\Temp).

  4. Type in a command-line shell, to generate the Orthanc.log file:

    $ cd C:\Temp
    $ Orthanc-1.3.0-Release.exe --verbose Configuration.json > Orthanc.log 2<&1
  5. Restart the Orthanc service.

Under Debian GNU/Linux

  1. Stop the Orthanc service:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/orthanc stop
  2. Manually start Orthanc (using the same configuration as the service) and generate the log:

    $ sudo -u orthanc /usr/sbin/Orthanc --verbose /etc/orthanc/ > Orthanc.log 2>&1
  3. Restart the Orthanc service:

    $ sudo /etc/init.d/orthanc start

Under Docker

The command-line to be used is:

$ sudo docker run -a stderr -p 4242:4242 -p 8042:8042 --rm jodogne/orthanc --verbose /etc/orthanc > Orthanc.log 2>&1
