"Information" -> "Log visualization" shows "NO RESULT"


I have a running/working OCS server (on Ubuntu 16.04) which already deployed some activated packages to my test-clients. So the basic setup works.

Currently i am wondering why "Information" -> "Log visualization" just shows a "NO RESULT" notification.

I am assuming it should display the content of /var/log/ocsinventory-server/activity.log or what else should be displayed there?

EDIT (as i cant find a comment or reply function)

The solution mentioned by Stéphane is working. As a result i got a table displayed featuring a downloadable .csv log file.

Just for the completness:

This .csv log contains in my case right now 8 lines, 5 of them are empty. the other 4 are covering a time of 6 seconds and do represent access to the webinterface by user, date, time, page and ip.

Hi Fpoeck,

for some reason, the log.csv file can not be created by the v. 2.31 OCS server...

To solve this problem, in the file : /usr/share/ocsinventory-reports/ocsreports/require/function_commun.php

Add doubles slashs at the beginning of these lines :

//if (is_writable(LOG_FILE)){



Result :

 /********************************END SQL FUNCTION************************************/

 function addLog( $type, $value="",$lbl_sql='') {
         //global $logHandler;
         if ($_SESSION['OCS']['LOG_GUI'] == 1){

                 //if (is_writable(LOG_FILE)){
                         $logHandler = fopen( LOG_FILE, "a");
                         $dte = getDate();
                         $date = sprintf("%02d/%02d/%04d %02d:%02d:%02d", $dte["mday"], $dte["mon"], $dte["year"], $dte["hours"], $dte["minutes"], $dte["seconds"]);
                         if ($lbl_sql != ''){
                                 $value=$lbl_sql.' => '.$value;

Regards, Stéphane
