Constant Activity in Live Logging

I’m looking and the Live Logging in the IDE and its quite busy with messages and I’m just wondering if this is normal or if there is something being reported here thats actually an error

In particular every couple of seconds I get a message form the Hub like this one:
349a7f77-a75d-48e8-82d8-cc9080ad2935 7:22:53 PM EDT: debug params: [ts:1466032849120, stateID:1465880719299, _:1466030162485, access_token:XXX-XXX, appId:349a7f77-a75d-48e8-82d8-cc9080ad2935, param1:ping, action:[GET:executeSmartAppGet, POST:executeSmartAppPost, PUT:executeSmartAppPut, DELETE:executeSmartAppDelete, OPTIONS:executeSmartAppOptions], controller:smartAppApi]

Is this expected/Normal?

Besides this there is constant activity (every 5 mins or so) from SmartApps like Nest Manager and Harmony Connect, but I assume these are just polls to check for things changing?

dc426c85-bb88-457e-b94f-44552c4bb510 7:25:40 PM EDT: debug getChildDevices(false), children=8
dc426c85-bb88-457e-b94f-44552c4bb510 7:25:39 PM EDT: trace [[id:20156886, name:SmartThings, type:5], [id:19298605, name:Mac Mini, type:11], [id:19334011, name:iTunes Inside, type:4], [id:19102305, name:Watch TV, type:1], [id:19110355, name:Play PS4, type:3], [id:19445526, name:Echo Music, type:4], [id:19334358, name:Netflix, type:12], [id:off, name:Activity OFF, type:0]]

Am I just being paranoid looking at logs I don’t even understand :anguished:

Btw. In a related question, anywhere where the Live Logging is explained and how to do some troubleshooting

You can see what specific Device Type Handlers and/or SmartApps are logging the messages by selecting them on the Live Logging page in the header area (their names pop up when their first message is generated).

Clicking in a name in the header will filter the live log for that module and make it easier to figure out what is going on.

In fact, that’s about all there is to know about Live Logging! It’s sometimes useful and mostly harmless.

The above is from SmartTiles by the way.

You can reduce SmartTiles logging using the Log Level option in the Dashboard configuration pages of the SmartApp. It is just informational.
