Chapter 26 Logging Attributes
The Logging Attributes are global attributes. The values applied to them are applied across the Sun ONE Identity Server configuration and are inherited by every configured organization. (They can not be applied directly to roles or organizations as the goal of global attributes is to customize the Identity Server application.) The Logging Attributes are:
Max Log Size
Max Log Size
This attribute accepts a value for the maximum size (in bytes) of a Identity Server log file. A number up to one million can be input in the value field. The default value is 1000000.
Number of History Files
This attribute has a value equal to the number of backup log files that will be retained for historical analysis. Any integer can be input depending on the partition size and available disk space of the local system. The default value is 3.
The file-based logging function needs a location where log files can be stored. This field accepts a full directory path to that location. The default location is:
If a non-default directory is being used, this directory must have write permission to the user under which Identity Server is running.
This attribute allows you to specify either File, for flat file logging, or DB for database logging.
Database User Name
This attribute accepts the name of the user that will connect to the database when the Logging Type attribute is set to DB.
Database User Password
This attribute accepts the database user password when the Logging Type attribute is set to DB.
Database User Password (Confirm)
Confirmation of the database password.
Database Driver Name
This attribute allows the user to specify the driver that is to be used for the logging implementation class.
Configurable Log Fields
This parameter represents the list of fields that are to be logged. By default, the following fields are logged:
Log Verification Time
This attribute sets the frequency (in seconds) that the server should verify the logs to detect tampering. The default time is 3600 seconds. This parameter applies to secure logging only.
Log Signature Time
This parameter sets the frequency (in seconds) that the log will be signed. The default time is 900 seconds. This parameter applies to secure logging only.
This attribute specifies whether or not to enable secure logging. By default, secure logging is off. Secure Logging enables detection of unauthorized changes or tampering of security logs.
Maximum Number of Records
This attribute sets the maximum number of records that the Java LogReader interfaces return, regardless of how many records match the read query. By default, it is set to 500. This attribute can be overridden by the caller of the Logging API through the LogQuery parameter.
Remote Buffer Size
This attribute specifies the maximum amount of log records to be buffered in memory before they are sent to the logging service to be logged. The default is one record.
Number Of Files Per Archive
This attribute is only applicable to secure logging. It specifies when the log files and keystore need to be archived, and the secure keystore regenerated, for subsequent secure logging. The default is five files per logger.
