About Event Attributes and Log File Format

Each event within the log file contains information about the associated application condition, including:

  • Event Identifier
    • Type (category)
    • Subtype
  • Timestamp
  • Severity Level
  • Details (metrics) about the event

For examples of individual events and their attribute values, see Examples of Siebel Server Log Files and Examples of Component Log Files. For an example of a group of events collected within a log file, see Example of Detailed Component Log File.

Events are written to and collected in a log file in the order of their occurrence. Each log file contains a header that provides information on the individual log file. The following is an example of a log file header:

2021 2004-02-12 09:07:28 0000-00-00 00:00:00 -0800 00000000 001 003f 0001 09 SiebSrvr 2049 1364 1548 d:\sba80\siebsrvr\log\siebel77.server1.log 8.0 [20405] ENU

The log file header details are described in Table 18.
