NAME

smlog - manage and view WBEM log files  

SYNOPSIS

/usr/sadm/bin/smlog subcommand [auth_args] -- [subcommand_args]  

DESCRIPTION

The smlog command manages WBEM log files and allows a user to view WBEM log file records.  

Subcommands

The smlog command supports the following subcommands:

backup

Backs up the entries in the current WBEM log file. The backup command then creates a new log file and makes this log file the current log file.

delete

Deletes an existing (backed up) WBEM log file.

list

Lists the names of all the WBEM log files available for viewing.

view

Allows the user to view the contents of the specified WBEM log file.

 

OPTIONS

The smlog authentication arguments, auth_args, are derived from the smc(1M) arg set and are the same regardless of which subcommand you use. The smlog command requires the Solaris Management Console to be initialized for the command to succeed (see smc(1M)). After rebooting the Solaris Management Console server, the first Solaris Management Console connection might time out, so you might need to retry the command.

The subcommand-specific options, subcommand_args, must come after the auth_args and must be separated from them by the -- option.  

auth_args

The valid auth_args are -D, -H, -l, -p, -r, and -u; they are all optional. If no auth_args are specified, certain defaults will be assumed and the user may be prompted for additional information, such as a password for authentication purposes. These letter options can also be specified by their equivalent option words preceded by a double dash. For example, you can use either -D or --domain with the domain argument.

-D | --domain  domain

Specifies the default domain that you want to manage. smlog accepts only file for this option. file is also the default value.

The file default domain means that changes are local to the server. Toolboxes can change the domain on a tool-by-tool basis; this option specifies the domain for all other tools.

-H | --hostname  host_name:port

Specifies the host_name and port to which you want to connect. If you do not specify a port, the system connects to the default port, 898. If you do not specify host_name:port, the Solaris Management Console connects to the local host on port 898. You may still have to choose a toolbox to load into the console. To override this behavior, use the smc -B option (see smc(1M)), or set your console preferences to load a "home toolbox" by default.

-l | --rolepassword  role_password

Specifies the password for the role_name. If you specify a role_name but do not specify a role_password, the system prompts you to supply a role_password. Passwords specified on the command line can be seen by any user on the system, hence this option is considered insecure.

-p | --password  password

Specifies the password for the user_name. If you do not specify a password, the system prompts you for one. Passwords specified on the command line can be seen by any user on the system, hence this option is considered insecure.

-r | --rolename  role_name

Specifies a role name for authentication. If you do not specify this option, no role is assumed.

-u | --username  user_name

Specifies the user name for authentication. If you do not specify this option, the user identity running the console process is assumed.

--

This option is required and must always follow the preceding options. If you do not enter the preceding options, you must still enter the -- option.

 

subcommand_args

Descriptions and other arg options that contain white spaces must be enclosed in double quotes.

The backup subcommand supports the following subcommand_args:

-h

Displays the command's usage statement.

This subcommand_arg is optional.

The delete subcommand supports the following subcommand_args

-h

Displays the command's usage statement.

This subcommand_arg is optional.

-n name

Specifies the name of the log file you want to delete.

The list subcommand supports the following subcommand_args:

-h

Displays the command's usage statement.

This subcommand_arg is optional.

The view subcommand supports the following subcommand_args:

-h

Displays the command's usage statement.

This subcommand_arg is optional.

-n name

Specifies the name of the log file you want to view.

-v

Displays the data in verbose format.

This subcommand_arg is optional.

 

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Listing WBEM Log Files

The following command lists all available WBEM log files:

./smlog list -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root --

Log.01/03/2001.14:38:29 
Log.01/04/2001.16:34:59 
Log.01/08/2001.14:13:33 
Log.01/11/2001.18:39:53 
Log.01/12/2001.10:31:31 
Log.12/21/2000.17:41:11

Example 2: Displaying a WBEM Log File

The following command displays the contents of a log file:

./smlog view -H myhost -p mypasswd -u root -- -n Log.01/04/2001.16:34:59

Date and Time       Client     User   Source            Severity       Cate
