In SharePoint ULS logs I come across OWSTIME.EXE records few activities under category ILDS.

What could be this actually referring to?


  • To clarify, I would like to know What is ILDS, it is the category against which SharePoint timer service logs its activities. – Battlesmith Apr 4 '13 at 0:51
  • Can you provide an example entry from the ULS log? – Trevor Seward Apr 4 '13 at 2:47
  • @TrevorSeward - Added an image, hope it helps – Battlesmith Apr 4 '13 at 4:26
  • Are you sure this isn't a custom timer job? Usually Microsoft wouldn't put the name of a source file (Fixer.cs) within the log itself like that. – Trevor Seward Apr 4 '13 at 4:37

That is the SharePoint Timer Service which is used for Timer Jobs

  • Hi Ryan. Appreciate your reply. I am aware OWSTIMER is SharePoint Timer Service. Apologies if my question was not clear, I would like to know what is ILDS, which the category against which SharePoint timer service records activities. – Battlesmith Apr 3 '13 at 23:50
