About Component Log Files
Siebel Server component log files record data for each individual component and task functioning on a particular Siebel Server. These component log files are stored in the Siebel Server log directory on the Siebel Server in which the components are active. The log directory location on Windows is SIEBSRVR_ROOT\log. The log directory on UNIX is SIEBSRVR_ROOT/enterprises/EnterpriseServerName/SiebelServerName/log. Using event logging with individual components allows you to isolate portions of the Siebel Business Application.
Component log files use the following naming convention:
SISProcID is an internal process ID that is incremented sequentially as component processes are spawned
There is one process ID counter for all processes, not for each component. Therefore, you can sort the log files of a particular component by the specific component process.
Individual component task log files can also be consolidated into a single log file by setting the component parameter Use Shared Log File (alias LogUseSharedFile). See Siebel System Administration Guide for further information on this parameter and for information on administering the Siebel Server and server component parameters.
For further information and examples of component log files, see Viewing Component Log Files and Examples of Component Log Files.
