  1. Access the /POS/OpenStack/BMC_CO/logging pconfig variable.
  2. Set this variable to 1 to enable the debug, or 0 to disable.

The log file is located at the $PATROL_HOME/OpenStack/log directory. The log file name is <ENVIRONMENT_NAME>_<PORT>_JavaCollector.log. By default, the maximum size of the log file is 10 MB.
