Sun Java System Access Manager 7 2005Q4 Technical Overview

Logging Architecture

When Access Manager starts up or when any logging configuration data is changed through the console, logging configuration data is loaded into the Logging component. This data includes the log message format, log file name, maximum log size, and the number of history files. Applications can use the Client APIs to access the Logging features from a local or remote server. The Client APIs use an XML-over-HTTP layer to send logging requests to the Logging component on the server where Access Manager is installed.
