Overview of BMC Server Automation log files

A standard BMC Server Automation installation provides default logging behavior that satisfies the needs of many organizations. Defaults vary for Windows and UNIX systems.

(Windows):

  • The RSCD agent logs to rscdInstallDirectory\rscd.log as a rollfile at the info1 level.
  • The RSCD agent service logs to rscdInstallDirectory\rscdsvc.log as a rollfile at the info level.
  • BLPackage Deploy Jobs log at the debug level to locations based on the name and location of the jobs.
  • BLPackage Deploy Jobs on the console log to stdout as a stream at the debug level. The priority level can be overridden using Transaction Options when defining the BLPackage Deploy Job. For more information, see Specifying job options.
  • The Application Server logs to installDirectory\br\appserver.log as a stream at the info level.

(UNIX):

  • The RSCD agent logs to rscdInstallDirectory/log/rscd.log as a rollfile at the info1 level.
  • BLPackage Deploy Jobs log at the debug level to locations based on the name and location of the jobs.
  • BLPackage Deploy Jobs on the console log to stdout as a stream at the debug level. The priority level can be overridden using Transaction Options when defining the BLPackage Deploy Job. For more information, see Specifying job options.
  • The Application Server logs to installDirectory/br/appserver.log as a stream at the info level.
