Monitoring Procedures

The log files, found in the /users/unison/log directory, are a useful starting point for troubleshooting problems related to the calendar server's operations or performance.

Viewing log files

To view a log file, go to the /users/unison/log directory and open the file using a text editor. Note that log files for utilities are created the first time the utility is run.

Table 11-1 Calendar server log files
Filename Description


Tracks calendar usage and monitors possible security violations. To track all signons and signoffs, set the [ENG] activity parameter in unison.ini to TRUE. The size of the act.log file should be closely monitored, since it can increase quickly.


For the Corporate-Wide Services. Set the [CWS] trace parameter in unison.ini to TRUE to log each transaction performed by the CWS. This will cause the size of the cws.log file to increase quickly, and should only be used for a short time for testing or debugging purposes.


For the Directory Access Service.


For Directory Access Service statistics.


For node (database) initialization.


Database operation file. Created only if there is a problem.


For directory server (LDAP) calls.


For the Engine.


For the Lock Manager.


For all UNIX utilities.


For the Synchronous Network Connections.


Tracks CPU consumption, user wait times, and network traffic for calendar server user sessions. Session statistics are output once a client session is terminated normally. To enable this logging, set the [ENG] stats parameter in unison.ini to TRUE. The size of the stats.log file should be closely monitored since it can increase quickly.


For various utilities that create and update self-named log files when they are run.

Interpreting log files

Much of the content of the calendar server log files is self-explanatory, namely the sections referring to the status of the various daemons/servers. Interpreting other sections may require the knowledge and resources of a qualified support representative. If you are uncertain about the content of a log file, contact your technical support representative for further assistance.
