The Logging service stores the attributes and values for the logging function. A global service configuration file named amLogging.xml defines the Logging attributes. Examples of Logging Service attributes are maximum log size, log location, and log format (flat file or relational database). The attribute values are applied across the Access Manager deployment and inherited by every configured realm. By default, amLogging.xml is located in the directory /etc/opt/SUNWam/config/xml. The structure of amLogging.xml is defined by file sms.dtd.
