Options on the Admin
tab allow an administrative user to access a list of connected users, to display a message to all connected users, or to download console logs (see Figure 4.12).
Select the Show logged in users
button to display the Logged in users
dialog (see Figure 4.13).
Click the Remove Message
button to remove the banner. Please note that the wall banner is stored in the console database, and will persist after a server restart; you must use the Remove Message
button to remove a banner.
Use the Download
button in the Download Console Logs
panel of the Admin
tab to download a zip file that contains the server logs for the underlying application server. You can confirm changes to server status or verify server activity by reviewing the application server log file.
When the server.log
file fills, EDB Ark attaches a unique identifier to the file name, and rotates the file into storage.
You can use the Linux tail
utility (shown in Figure 4.16) to display the most recent entries in any of the server logs. For example, to review the last 10 lines in the server log file, connect to the console host with ssh
specifies the complete path to the log file.
You can include the -F
option to instruct the tail
utility to display the last 10 lines of the log file, and new log file entries as they are added to the file:
utility will continue to display new log file entries if the server log rotates to a new file. Enter Ctrl-C
to exit tail
and return to the command prompt.
