This attribute is an optional Boolean for QDoc requests at the root element level that indicates whether during application processing the QDoc should log the request internally for audit trail or recovery purposes. Because of the potential performance overhead associated with logging, requestors may want to avoid the cost of logging, particular in local integrations running in a stable, local network environment.
Logging is most important in distributed environments, where the QDoc application may be deployed across multiple application servers or machines using communication links that are less than 100% reliable. Even when an integration framework is receiving all QDoc requests, logging at this level may not be sufficient when the application is running as multiple components in separate environments. It may be necessary for the application to write log entries in order to protect against internal communication failures between the application component and the integration framework.
Note: Because there is no equivalent of the logtransaction attribute in the QDoc 1.1 syntax specification, logtransaction has been removed from that version of the syntax.
