VolserLog - Traces Volume Server operations
file records a trace of Volume Server (volserver
process) operations on the local machine and describes any error conditions it
If the VolserLog file does not already exist in the /var/log/openafs
directory when the Volume Server starts, the server process creates it and
writes initial start-up messages to it. If there is an existing file, the
Volume Server renames it to VolserLog.old
, overwriting the existing
file if it exists.
The file is in ASCII format. Administrators listed in the
file can use the bos getlog
to display its contents. Alternatively, log onto the file server machine and
use a text editor or a file display command such as the UNIX cat
command. By default, the mode bits on the VolserLog
file grant the
required "r" (read) permission to all users.
The Volume Server records operations only as it completes them, and so cannot
recover from failures by reviewing the file. The log contents are useful for
administrative evaluation of process failures and other problems.
