Configuring BMC Atrium CMDB Engine Logging
This topic explains how to configure logging information for the BMC Atrium CMDB engine using the CMDB Administration console. The CMDB engine dynamically updates the logging configuration changes you make and you do not require to restart the AR System server for any change to take effect. Centralized Configuration System avoids file system access for making the logging related changes. For more information, see Centralized Configuration.
