wbemlogviewer - start WBEM Log Viewer




The wbemlogviewer utility starts the WBEM Log Viewer graphi- cal user interface, which enables administrators to view and maintain log records created by WBEM clients and providers. The WBEM Log Viewer displays a Login dialog box. You must log in as root or a user with write access to the root\cimv2 namespace to view and maintain log files. Namespaces are described in wbemadmin(1M). Log events can have three severity levels. o Errors o Warnings o Informational The WBEM log file is created in the /var/sadm/wbem/log directory, with the name wbem_log. The first time the log file is backed up, it is renamed wbem_log.1, and a new wbem_log file is created. Each succeeding time the wbem_log file is backed up, the file extension number of each backup log file is increased by 1, and the oldest backup log file is removed. Older backup files have higher file extension numbers than more recent backup files. The log file is renamed with a .1 file extension and saved when one of the following two conditions occur: o The current file reaches the file size limit specified in the WBEM Services properties file, /var/sadm/wbem/ o A WBEM client application uses the clearLog() method in the Solaris_LogService class to clear the current log file. The WBEM Services properties file /var/sadm/wbem/ is modified when you change the properties of log files. Help is displayed in the left panel of each dialog box. Con- text help is not displayed in the main Log Viewer window.
