Re: SAM log

If you look at the man page for sam, you will find (in the FILES section) that the logs are:

/var/sam/log/samlog

- and -

/var/sam/log/samlog.old

Re: SAM log

Hi prakash,

Re: SAM log

Hi Oprakash,

You cannot directly view the sam log which is stored on /var/sam/log/samlog since it contains raw SAM logfile data. You need to use samlog_viewer tool to read the logs.

Just run this command,
#/usr/sam/bin/samlog_viewer

If you want to view the old samlog(/var/sam/log/samlog.olg) use this command.

#/usr/sam/bin/samlog_viewer /var/adm/log/samlog.old
Best wishes,

Ganesh.
