Customize Logging

You can customize logging by setting up your own log streams. Each log stream creates a separate log file in which specific log message types (for example, action, index, application, or import) are logged.

To set up log streams

  1. Open the HPE Answer Server configuration file in a text editor.
  2. Find the [Logging] section. If the configuration file does not contain a [Logging] section, add one.
  3. In the [Logging] section, create a list of the log streams that you want to set up, in the format N=LogStreamName. List the log streams in consecutive order, starting from 0 (zero). For example:

    [Logging]
    LogLevel=FULL
    LogDirectory=logs
    0=ApplicationLogStream
    1=ActionLogStream

    You can also use the [Logging] section to configure any default values for logging configuration parameters, such as LogLevel. For more information, see the HPE Answer Server Reference.

  4. Create a new section for each of the log streams. Each section must have the same name as the log stream. For example:

    [ApplicationLogStream]
    [ActionLogStream]
  5. Specify the settings for each log stream in the appropriate section. You can specify the type of logging to perform (for example, full logging), whether to display log messages on the console, the maximum size of log files, and so on. For example:

    [ApplicationLogStream]
    LogTypeCSVs=application
    LogFile=application.log
    LogHistorySize=50
    LogTime=True
    LogEcho=False
    LogMaxSizeKBs=1024
    [ActionLogStream]
    LogTypeCSVs=action
    LogFile=logs/action.log
    LogHistorySize=50
    LogTime=True
    LogEcho=False
    LogMaxSizeKBs=1024
  6. Save and close the configuration file. Restart the service for your changes to take effect.
