The node log files are specific to a service or a node.
Such files contain logs for notifications, alerts, scheduled events, and synchronizations between the loader and the analytics services.

Incorta stores these files at the following location:
<incorta_installation_directory>/IncortaAnalytics/IncortaNode/services/<serviceID>/logs/incorta/

The log file name format in the CMC Logs Manager is:
localNode_<service_name>_incorta.<date>.log
For example, localNode_analyticsService_incorta.2021-03-23.log.
