A System Log and Configuration Files

This appendix provides the names and locations of the Oracle RTD log and configuration files. To ensure the integrity of the information in these files, you should use operating system or other tools to set the appropriate file permissions on the parent directories that contain these files, so that an intruder cannot access them.

This section contains the following topics:

A.1 Searching and Viewing Server-Side Log Files

In the Enterprise Manager of Fusion Middleware Control, you can search and view log files both within and across Oracle Fusion Middleware components. You can also download log files to your local client and view the log files using other tools.

You must first log into Fusion Middleware Control. For details, see Section 2.1.1, "Logging into Fusion Middleware Control."

To access the log files from the Oracle RTD home page, right-click the deployed Oracle RTD application in the navigation pane, and select Logs, then View Log Messages.

The Log Messages screen appears.

Figure A-1 shows an overview of the main Oracle Fusion Middleware operations to search and view log files.

The following notes are more specific to Oracle RTD users:

  1. The list of log files includes the Managed Server log file, which has the general name server_name.log.

    The Oracle RTD runtime log files have the general name server_name-diagnostic[-<n>].log.

  2. To search for files that are specific to Oracle RTD, first add the field Module to the search fields, enter oracle.rtd in the Module search box, then click Search. Surrounding text describes add_module.gif.

A.2 Configuring Oracle RTD Server-Side Log Files

You can configure the following properties of Oracle RTD server-side log files:

  • The name and location of log files.

  • The size of log files.

    You can specify that a new file is created either when the log file reaches a certain size or when a particular time is reached.

  • The level of information written to log files.

    This enables you to control the type and level of detail of information written to log files, by specifying message type and message level. The most common message types are Error, Warning, Notification, and Trace. You can set the message level of Notification and Trace files to control the granularity of message detail.

  • The format of the log files.

  • The Locale encoding.

For more information about configuring log files, see the section "Configuring Settings for Log Files" in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.
