The GnowsisEvaluation wants to find out how users actually use the Semantic Desktop. Therefor a Evaluation Logger was written to help DominikHeim do this in his diploma thesis (see for details).

All the logged data is kept private and deleted after the diploma thesis is written. The data that will be published will be anonymous.

You can chose what data you want to give away for the evaluation. Please consider using the log-level FINE or FINEST, to support the scientific work.


  • OFF – off ;-)
  • INFO – Only actions are logged (no data)
  • FINE – actions and (anonymous) data is logged
  • FINEST – actions and data is logged

Sending the data to Dominik

At the 29th of May, please send your data via e-mail to Dominik Heim. Send the file in your home directory (C:\documents and settings\yourname\.gnowsis-beta\evaluation.log) to Dominik Heim. heim@…. As this file can grow very big, you might want to zip it beforehand.

In this file generic use data is collected (click-counts, which parts of the software you used) and if you decided to use log-level "FINEST" or "FINE", some personal data is collected. FINEST will capture some file-names and other personal information, which we will not communicate to anyone.
