The SMPP Logger records SMPP events in a compact format. Log records are useful for report generation and problem analysis. Configuration options in “smpp_logger Module Configuration” determine which events are recorded. Mobile Momentum records the following event types in the SMPP log:

Log EventConfiguration ParameterDescription
Receptionslog_receptionSMS messages successfully received from the SMSC
Deliverieslog_deliverySMS messages successfully delivered to the SMSC
Statuslog_statusStatus, as indicated in delivery receipts, of previously sent SMS messages
Temporary Failureslog_tempfailFailure while sending an SMS message, but eligible for retry
Permanent Failureslog_permfailFailure while sending an SMS message, not eligible for retry

Logging of each event type may be enabled or disabled by setting the corresponding configuration parameter to either 'true' or 'false'. An additional configuration parameter for each event type specifies the format and content of log entries. These parameters are named with the suffix _format added to each of the event type parameters; for example, log_reception_format specifies the format and content of SMS reception log entries when log_reception = true. The “Log Format Macros” section describes the options associated with the content/format configuration parameters.
