Sun Java System Web Server 6.1 SP11 Administrator's Guide

Viewing Events (Windows)

In addition to logging errors to the server error log (see Viewing the Error Log File), the Sun Java System Web Server logs severe system errors to the Event Viewer. The Event Viewer lets you monitor events on your system. Use the Event Viewer to see errors resulting from fundamental configuration problems, which can occur before the error log is opened.

To use the Event Viewer, perform the following steps:

ProcedureTo use the Event Viewer

  1. From the Start menu, select Programs and then Administrative Tools. Choose Event Viewer in the Administrative Tools program group.

  2. Choose Application from the Log menu.

    The Application log appears in the Event Viewer. Errors from Sun Java System Web Server has a source label of https-serverid or WebServer6.1.

  3. Choose Find from the View menu to search for one of these labels in the log. Choose Refresh from the View menu to see updated log entries.

    For more information about the Event Viewer, consult your system documentation.
