Displaying logged messages

The following views are available to display the messages that were logged by MainView Logger:

    LOGMSG displays messages that were logged by MainView Logger, including extended diagnostic mode (XDM) messages, SYSLOG messages, and BBI-SS PAS journal records.

    To access the LOGMSG view, type LOGMSG on the COMMAND line and press Enter. LOGMSG is displayed.


    LOGRPT displays messages that were logged by MainView Logger, including extended diagnostic mode (XDM) messages, SYSLOG messages, and BBI-SS PAS journal records.

    The fields in the fixed section on the top of the LOGRPT view determines how many records are displayed. By default, the number of records requested for an individual target is 1000 and the time is set to the current time. Overtype the fields in the fixed section or use the LOGTIME primary command to request a different set of records to view.

    LOGRPT is a hybrid view that contains a fixed section and a scrollable section containing row data. The hyperlink on the first field of the fixed section (-|+) is used as a toggle to show (include) or hide (exclude) the display of the fixed section. The primary commands INC FIX and EXC FIX serve the same purpose as the - and + hyperlinks.

    To access the LOGRPT view, type LOGRPT on the COMMAND line and press Enter. LOGRPT is displayed.


    LOGJRNL displays log entries specifically for MainView products that run in a BBI-SS PAS . The journal messages from a BBI-SS PAS are intermixed with all of the logged messages, making it difficult to use the view for BBI-SS PAS messages. The LOGJRNL view isolates the BBI-SS PAS journal messages and includes additional information to make the messages more useful, such as the point of entry of an event or message.

    To access the LOGJRNL view, type LOGJRNL on the COMMAND line and press Enter. LOGJRNL is displayed.


The LOGMSG, LOGRPT, and LOGJRNL views can be accessed from Plex Manager or any MainView product in either windows or full-screen mode.

For products that are running in full-screen mode, LOGMSG, LOGRPT, and LOGJRNL are considered transfer commands rather than view commands. They transfer you from a full-screen application to the LOGMSG, LOGRPT, or LOGJRNL view in windows mode.
