As normal, I like to blog about areas of ITM that I cover when working with you, either through PMRs or direct on customer site.

Today's series topics is all related to increase the log file size on a Linux / Unix based TEMS.

 

 

 

Why would I need this?

There has been a few cases where larger log files were needed to capture the data support needed to identify the problem (especially relating to communications), so here are the simple steps to increase the size and number of logs the TEMS uses before it wraps around its log files.

Paramaters needed:

You can change these parameters by adding the following 3 lines in      

$CANDLEHOME/config/[hostname]_ms_[TEMS name].config                     

                                                                       

CTIRA_LOG_PATH='/opt/IBM/ITM/logs'                                      

                                                                       

KBB_VARPREFIX='%'                                                       

                                                                       

KBB_RAS1_LOG='%(CTIRA_LOG_PATH)/[hostname]_ms_%(systask)_%(sysutcstart)-.log INVENTORY=%(CTIRA_LOG_PATH)/[hostname]_ms_%(systask).inv COUNT=15  LIMIT=10 PRESERVE=1 MAXFILES=20'                                        

                                                                       

 

                                                                       

                                                   

Parameter Key

 

INVENTORY is the location of a file that keeps track of all log sections

COUNT is the number of files before wrap around                         

LIMIT is size in megabytes                                              

PRESERVE log segments to preserve, in this case segment 1               

MAXFILES = number of sessions to keep.        

 

NOTE: Remember to replace the [hostname] (as above in bold to the hostname of your system
