Log files in SIM

Hi,
Does SIM logs all the events/trap it receives in a file before displaying in the UI.

Re: Log files in SIM

SIM logs all events it displays in the GUI in it's database. It does not log the events that it is configured to discard.

Re: Log files in SIM

Hi Sudesh,

No SIM only logs events into the SIM database and in fact the event data is spread between several database tables (notices, noticetype, trapdata, ...) and is not in any type of ASCII format that can be easily examined. When SIM displays the events it retrieves the data and reformats it into a user friendly format.
