Export Geoprocessing Results to Text File?

I am hoping that this is possible.

I am running cache processes (currently through Model Builder) that sometimes last past the time I leave for the day. At the same time, overnight (late) I have routines that run updates and close out my connections to GIS (if it is still open).

Occasionally my cache processes will have errors, i.e. the "Failed to Manage tiles.." errors. These show up on the GP window but for some reason do not write out to the GP log file.

Is there a way that we can capture the results in the geoprocessing window (using Model Builder or similar) and export them to a text file or is my best option to run these as python scripts? I'm trying to avoid the latter just because I want to follow the process initially but at the same time I have no way of knowing whether the caches 'really did' complete or not since those details do not get translated.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your help!
