This documents addresses the need to rely on the crawler log-entries in order to resolve problems reported in the Crawler Summary Page.

In particular conversion failures are reported when documents can not be converted to HTML files, examples of such  files are binary files, images, formats that are no known from specific applications we don't have filters for, etc.

The summary of metrics found in the crawler log at end of process show the following info:

========== Crawling results ===================
Crawling started at 2/23/15 9:07 AM
Crawling stopped at 2/24/15 6:21 AM
Total number of documents discovered = 498,452
Total number of documents updated = 498,424
Total number of documents deleted = 467
Total number of documents excluded = 0
Total number of documents with processing errors = 0
Total number of documents with conversion failures = 1,612   (*)

(*) Conversion failures  metric used to include both attached documents and embedded documents (content in a zip or jar file)

Problem was the crawler log file missed to identify which specific attached documents or which specific embedded files had the conversion failure, the log entries always referenced only the parent document.
