Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Administration Guide

Log Files

The log files record a number of events for each of the services it monitors. These files should be checked by the administrator on a regular basis. The default directory for the log files is /var/opt/SUNWam/logs for SPARC systems and /var/opt/sun/identity for Linux systems. The log file directory can be configured in the Logging Service by using the Access Manager console.

See How the Logging Feature Works in Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Technical Overview in the Sun Java System Access Manager Technical Overview for a detailed list of the default log file types, the information that is recorded, and log file formats.

For attribute definitions for the Logging Service, see the online help by clicking the Help button in the Access Manager Console.
