The Background Plugin Export Job is a cron job that runs in the background. It executes all exporter plugins one at a time and randomly. It logs high-level information such as what appropriate data was loaded and what Ubersmith exporter plugins were run. Once it runs an exporter plugin, it continues to log data related to the active plugin itself. The cron job runs every five minutes, unless it is already actively running an exporter plugin.

There is one new log file per day, and all logging for an exporter plugin is combined into a single file. In order to identify which part of the Ubersmith application a record is related to, each individual exporter plugin and the Plugin Export Job have their own channels to indicate where the data was produced. You can show or hide the Plugin Export Job logs within exporter plugin logs to manage what information is shown in the search results. If an export problem happens, knowing which channel the issue is located and where to debug is key to solving it.

Plugin Exporter Job log files are named export_job and are located in /var/www/ubersmith_root/logs/export.
