The logging architecture of Sun OpenDS Standard Edition and the Sun Java System Directory Server differ significantly. The most notable differences include the following:
Sun OpenDS Standard Edition allows for several loggers of any type to be defined and active at any time. This feature makes it possible to log messages to different locations and to different types of repositories. You can also define different sets of criteria for what to include in the logs. For example, one access log might hold everything, another might hold operations with a non-zero result code only, and yet another might hold write operations only.
The Sun Java System Directory Server defines an audit logger that is used to hold information about the changes that are made to directory data. In Sun OpenDS Standard Edition, the audit logging capability is still present, but it is classified as a type of access logger.
Note - The current Sun OpenDS Standard Edition logging mechanism cannot easily be used to define filters that restrict the types of content to include in the log.
