6 Controlling Logging

Failover Manager writes and stores one log file per agent and one startup log per agent in /var/log/cluster_name-3.1 (where cluster_name specifies the name of the cluster).
You can control the level of detail written to the agent log by modifying the jgroups.loglevel and efm.loglevel parameters in the cluster properties file:
FINEST
FINER
FINE
CONFIG
INFO
WARNING
SEVERE
For example, if you set the efm.loglevel parameter to WARNING, Failover Manager will only log messages at the WARNING level and above (WARNING and SEVERE).
By default, Failover Manager log files are rotated daily, compressed, and stored for a week. You can modify the file rotation schedule by changing settings in the log rotation file (/etc/logrotate.d/efm-3.1). For more information about modifying the log rotation schedule, consult the logrotate man page:
