Service Reference Card

Line: 65 to 62

Logfile locations (and management) and other useful audit information

The relevant log files are:

  • The tomcat log file ( /usr/share/tomcat5/logs/catalina.out)

  • The trustmanager log file ( /usr/share/tomcat5/logs/trustmanager.log)

  • The CREAM log file ( /var/log/cream/glite-ce-cream.log). The verbosity of this file can be increased modifying the file /etc/glite-ce-cream/log4j.properties replacing:

      log4j.logger.org.glite=info, fileout 


      log4j.logger.org.glite=debug, fileout

You may also change the attributes log4j.appender.fileout.MaxFileSize and log4j.appender.fileout.MaxBackupIndex to change the maximum file size and the maximum number of log files to be kept.

  • The glexec log files. glexec by default logs on syslog but it is also possible to log on file instead. Check the meaning of the variables GLEXEC_CREAM_LOG_DESTINATION, GLEXEC_CREAM_LOG_FILE, GLEXEC_CREAM_LCASLCMAPS_LOG in the yaim reference guide. The verbosity can be changed editing the glexec configuration file /etc/glexec.conf.

  • The new BLAH blparser log files (/var/log/cream/glite-ce-bnotifier.log and /var/log/cream/glite-ce-bupdater.log) if the new blparser is used

* The gridftp log files (globus-gridftp.log and gridftp-session.log)

C: Controllable Ephemeral range (e.g. 20000-25000). Note: In practice, although this port-range is locally configurable using the GLOBUS_TCP_PORT_RANGE environment variable, the values applying at a remote service cannot be predicted. Consequently reliable connection can only be established if all ports >1023 are left open for outbound connections.


Possible unit test of the service


Where is service state held (and can it be rebuilt)


Cron jobs

CREAM job related information are kept in the CREAM DB and in the filesystem in the directory referred by CREAM_SANDBOX_DIR (default /var/glite/cream_sandbox) in the CREAM configuration file (/etc/glite-ce-cream/cream-config.xml).
