There are several levels of information that can be recorded to the debug files. The debug level is set using the com.iplanet.services.debug.level property in AMConfig.properties.
Off—No debug information is recorded.
Error—This level is used for production. During production, there should be no errors in the debug files.
Warning—Currently, using this level is not recommended.
Message—This level alerts to possible issues using code tracing. Most Access Manager modules use this level to send debug messages.
Warning and Message levels should not be used in production. They cause severe performance degradation and an abundance of debug messages.
