About unified logging
Unified logging and legacy logging are the two forms of debug logging used in NetBackup. All NetBackup processes use one of these forms of logging. Server processes and client processes use unified logging.
Unified logging creates log file names and messages in a standardized format. These logging files cannot be easily viewed with a text editor. They are in binary format and some of the information is contained in an associated resource file. Only the vxlogview command can assemble and display the log information correctly.
Unlike legacy logging, unified logging does not require that you create logging subdirectories. Log files for originator IDs are written to a subdirectory with the name specified in the log configuration file. All unified logs are written to subdirectories in the following directory:
You can access logging controls in the NetBackup Administration Console. In the left pane, expand or . Double-click the server you want to change. In the left pane of the dialog box, click .
You can also manage unified logging by using the following commands:
Modifies the unified logging configuration settings.
for more information about the vxlogcfg command.
Manages the log files that the products that support unified logging generate.
for more information about the vxlogmgr command.
Displays the logs that unified logging generates.
for more information about the vxlogview command.
These commands are located in the following directory:
See the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide for a complete description about these commands.
More information about legacy logging is available.
