Log Files in HPSIM 5.1 SP1

Hi All,

Running HPSIM 5.1 SP1 on Windows 2003.

Would anyone have some information on the log files located on the HPSIM CMS/Console in the product installation location?

From the console, the scheduled task logs and audit log seem strait forward.

I've been looking at the log files located in C:\Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\logs...

mx.log appears to be the audit log, the same log used from the console.

mxdomainmgr.*.log(s) appears to be the hpsim server log(s).

mxinventory_log4j.log.[date] seems to be the web interface log.

Can anyone add to these descriptions or point out any other log files?

mxinitconfig_log4j.log and mxinititconfig.log: This file contains logs from the initialization of HP SIM, it is appended to each time SIM is upgraded.

mxdtf.X.log and DTFServer_log4j.log : Debug entries for the MxDTF process, which is responsible for running MSA, SSA and command tools in SIM

PgSQL_Config: Only on Linux and HP-UX when Postgresql is used. This is the log file for the postgres install and setup.

Thats all i guess.

Hi AjayHP,

Thanks for the detail on the log files.

It will be really helpful to have this on hand if problems come up.

I wish some of the experts on this site would write a nice fat book on hpsim.

Thanks again!
