Log Descriptions

The top-level system log presents a subset of relevant operational event log entries. Specifically, this log reports subsystem-level diagnostic events pertaining to system inventory actions and component health. These events can include power on and off, FRU insertion and removal, as well as health status events, such as service required, warning, or OK.
The event log tracks informational, warning, or error messages about a system such as the addition or removal of a component or the failure of a component. The event properties recorded in the event log can include: the severity of the event, the event provider (class), and the date and time the event was logged.
The event log is helpful for troubleshooting the system when problems occur. It is also helpful for monitoring the performance of the system.
The audit log tracks all interface-related user actions, such as user logins, user logouts, configuration changes, and password changes. The user interfaces monitored for user actions include the Oracle ILOM web interface, CLI, Fault Management Shell, Restricted Shell, Diagnostics Shell, and SNMP and IPMI client interfaces.
The audit log is helpful for auditing user activity to ensure that no privilege violations have occurred.
