Thread: Managed server logs

  1. Managed server logs

    When you fire up the NodeManager, and start up managed servers from the web
    console, where do the logs of the respective servers go? I couldn't seem to
    find anything telling in my domain directory when I looked.

    Thanx!

    These are a little different. I don't have my full config to hand at
    the moment, but from the
    http://edocs.bea.com/wls/docs81/admi...onitoring.html

    >>Node Manager Output—If you start a Managed Server with Node Manager,
    >>you can access Node Manager output using Domain—>Server—>Remote Start
    >>Output—>View Node Manager output


    You need to look at the SavedLogsDirectory parameter in the
    nodemanager.properties file. And you'll then find a folder created for
    each of the managed servers underneath a NodeManagerLogs folder.

    Http://edocs.bea.com/wls/docs81/admi...r.html#1146748

    Once the managed server starts, they keep using the same log file, and
    don't rotate them based on size or date like with the normal domain
    logs - unless I'm missing something.

    Will,

    You're going to actually see three different types of logs when you use the
    NM:

    1. The Node Manager log files which contain NM specific entries.
    2. The Managed Server log files which contain the managed server specific
    info such as you're used to seeing from stdout, stderr when you start the
    server from the command line. Also you'll find additional info such as the
    server's PID, and copy of the server's configuration called
    nodemanager.config
    3. Node Manger client logs which reside on the admin server and contain
    subdirectories for each managed server issued a NM command.

    You won't see these last two log file types or their subdirectories until
    you actually use the NM to start the managed servers. All of these logs
    however, are stored in a parent subdirectory called NodeManagerLogs. By
    default this directory is created in the directory where you called
    startNodeManager[.cmd .sh] from. So if I ran . startNodeManager.sh from
    mydomain then I would see

    $BEA_HOME/user_projects/domains/mydomain/NodeManagerLogs

    The easiest way I have found to deal with this is to ensure that
    $WL_HOME/server/bin is in your PATH and simply call . startNodeManager.sh
    from the directory you want the logs to be created in --of course with the
    appropriate arguments or values in nodemanger.properties--

    but remember the NM defaults to $WL_HOME/common/nodemanager so you may see
    the logs under their initially.

    //provide a follow up if any of that didn't make sense

  4. Re: Managed server logs

    Am I right in thinking though that when you use node manager, you don't
    get the normal domain log rotation facilities - the server log just
    gets bigger and bigger, When you stop the server a new log file will be
    created and the previous log file will be kept?

    Yeah Pete you're absolutely right the server logs aren't subject to normal
    rotation. You will get kind of a funky rotation when you restart the NM it
    creates new logs for each restart of the server storing the old ones under
    the name .output.log_prev and creating a new
    .output.log
