commandlog (5)


commandlog - command log file




The commandlog ASCII text file contains records of selected Oracle Solaris Cluster commands that are executed in a cluster. The logging of commands starts automatically when you set up the cluster and ends when you shut down the cluster.

Starting in the Oracle Solaris Cluster 4.4 release, by default the commandlog file is readable and writable only by the root user.

Commands that are not logged in this file include those that display the configuration and current state of the cluster. Commands that are logged in this file include those that configure and change the current state of the cluster, as follows:

  • claccess

  • cldevice

  • cldevicegroup

  • clinterconnect

  • clnasdevice

  • clnode

  • clquorum

  • clreslogicalhostname

  • clresource

  • clresourcegroup

  • clresourcetype

  • clressharedaddress

  • clsnmphost

  • clsnmpmib

  • clsnmpuser

  • cltelemetryattribute

  • cluster

  • clzonecluster

Each record in the commandlog file contains the following information:

  • Date and timestamp

  • Host name from the which the command was executed

  • Process ID of the command

  • ID of the user who executed the command

  • Command that the user executed, including all options and operands

    Note -  Command options are quoted in the commandlog file to enable you to copy, paste, and execute them in the shell.
  • Exit status or signal of the executed command

By default, the commandlog file is regularly archived at the end of every week. Oracle Solaris Cluster maintains up to eight previously archived commandlog files on each cluster node at any given time.
