This chapter describes diagnostic logging in WebCenter Portal.

This chapter includes the following topics:

Permissions:

To perform the tasks in this chapter, you must be granted the WebLogic Server Admin, Operator, or Monitor role through the Oracle WebLogic Server Administration Console.

See also, Section 1.8, "Understanding Administrative Operations, Roles, and Tools."

28.1 Introduction to Diagnostic Logging

All diagnostic information relating to startup and shutdown information, errors, warning messages, access information on HTTP requests, and other additional information is stored in log files.

For general information about managing and analyzing logs using Fusion Middleware Control and WLST, see the "Managing Log Files and Diagnostic Data" chapter in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.

See also, the "Understanding the Diagnostic Framework" section in Oracle Fusion Middleware Administrator's Guide.

WebCenter Portal Diagnostics Log

The diagnostics log file for WebCenter Portal is WC_Spaces-diagnostic.log.

This log is available under the DOMAIN_HOME/servers/WC_Spaces/logs directory.

Portal Framework Application Diagnostics Log

The diagnostics log file for Portal Framework applications is available in the DOMAIN_HOME/servers/ServerName/logs directory.

The log file follows the naming convention: ServerName-diagnostic.log

For example, if the Portal Framework application is deployed on a managed server named, WC_CustomPortal, diagnostics log information are stored under the DOMAIN_HOME/servers/WC_CustomPortal/logs directory, and the log file name is WC_CustomPortal-diagnostic.log.
