Enabling custom logging
To enable custom logging for the adapter, you must specify a log file name. You can also provide additional parameters for logging.
You must be using BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform version 7.8 or later to use the custom logging feature. These parameters will be ignored in earlier versions of BMC Atrium Orchestrator Platform.
These parameters are available with supported adapter versions. See your adapter documentation for details.
- Log File Name: Provide a name for the log file.
This file will be stored in the AO_HOME/tomcat/logs directory. If Log File Max Backup Index value is greater than 0, the log file name is suffixed with the backup index. For example, if the parameter value is a.log, backup log files will have names, such as a.log.1, a.log.2.
- Log File Size: Specify a size limit for the log file.
If the value specified for Log File Max Backup Index is greater than 0, when the specified size is reached, the current file is renamed with the suffix .1. Otherwise, the log file will be reset and over-written. The default value is 10MB. The available units are KiloBytes (KB), MegaBytes (MB) or GigaBytes (GB).
- Log File Max Backup Index: Enter the maximum number of backup files allowed. The default value is 10.
- Log File Append: Select this option to append new log information to the existing information in the file. If unselected, the file will be overwritten with new log information.
Log Level: Enter the logging level using one of the following choices:
The most detailed logging level; logs low-level messages, normal execution, recoverable erroneous conditions, and unrecoverable erroneous conditions
Logs normal execution, recoverable erroneous conditions, and unrecoverable erroneous conditions
Logs recoverable erroneous conditions and unrecoverable erroneous conditions
The least detailed logging level; logs only error conditions that are not usually recoverable
