The Directory Proxy Server logging service provides access logs and error logs. The logs are flat files that contain information about client operations and about the health of Directory Proxy Server. By default, log files are stored under instance-path/logs with the permission of 600. If an instance of Directory Proxy Server is started without valid log files, log files are created in the default location and a warning is sent to DSCC.
You can configure the following aspects of the logs:
Set the log level for each message category
Globally set the default log-level for all message categories
Globally enable all logs
Set the name, location and permissions of log files
Set the maximum number of log files
Define a rotation policy for each log file
Include or exclude search filters in access log messages for search operations
Log messages can also be sent to the syslog daemon. For information about how to log messages to a syslog daemon, see Logging Alerts to the syslogd Daemon in Sun Java System Directory Server Enterprise Edition 6.1 Administration Guide.
