The Logs Management window provides the ability to filter, download, and delete the SBC logs according to the log types.

On SBC main screen, navigate to Troubleshooting > Call Trace/Logs/Monitors > Log Management. The Logs Management window is displayed.

Figure : Log Management

 

Note:

If there are no files generated by the SBC for a type of log/trace, the corresponding log/trace option is not displayed in the list within the Log Management pane.

 

The Log Management pane is divided into the two vertical sections:

  • Left section provides a list of all the available log types.
  • Right section provides the details of log management parameters for the log type selected in the left section:

    Table : Log Management Parameters

     

    Parameter

    Name

    Specifies the name of the log file.

    Date

    Indicates the date when the log was generated.

    Time

    Indicates the time (in HH:MM:SS format) when the log was generated. The time is indicated in the 24-hr format. The time displayed is in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) zone.

    This section remains blank until a log type is selected from the list.

The following log types are displayed in the Log Management pane:

Table : Log Management - Descripion of the logs

 
LogDescription
Core DumpsLogs the operating system dump information, which consists of the recorded state of the working memory of kernel programs at a specific time, generally when the program is terminated abnormally (crashed).
Diagnostics LogsThese log files contain the information logged during a System Diagnostics operation of the SBC.
Event Logs

Event log stores the activities of accounting, system, call tracing, packet capture, security, debugging, and audit in EMA or CLI. It also provides information about the configuration activities of EMA, EMS, and CLI. The logs include system logs, debug logs, core dumps, call trace logs, and packet logs.

Message Logs

Message log stores the different types of interactive logs. Interactive logs store the system messages appearing on the EMA Platform Mode.

System DumpLogs the system dump information, which consists of the recorded state of the working memory of application program at a specific time, generally when the program is terminated abnormally (crashed).
T-sharkT-shark traces are used to analyze the network issues by capturing the packet traces. These captured packets are saved as  .pcap files.
Back TraceThese traces are used to diagnose the root cause of various system problems.
ApacheApache server stores any error/activity from the apache2.access.log process. It also provides information about the interaction between EMA and Apache server.
Netconf

Netconf stores the details about ConfD and Netconf access. It also provides information about the interaction between EMA and Oracle database.

Note

For security protection, the Netconf interface does not support "/aaa" records.


User ActivityThese log files store the user activities on the EMA Platform Mode. For more information, refer to Troubleshooting Tools - User Activity Log.
Install LogsThese log files store the process of the SBC application installation.
Upgrade LogsThese log files capture the process of upgrading an SBC application, or the operating system.
Runtime Diagnostic TestsThese log files contain information about the runtime environment, events, and errors of the diagnostics tests that runs on the SBC.
Platform Audit LogsThese log files contain information about the audit operations that runs at the platform level of the SBC.
Archived Platform Audit LogsThese log files serve as an archive of the logs captured and stored during the process of undergoing a Platform Audit operation.
Archived Live Upgrade LogsThese log files serve as an archive of the logs captured and stored during the process of undergoing a Platform Audit Operation.

The log files related to user activities in the EMA are available at the following directory of the SBC: /opt/sonus/ema/sbxema/log

To Download Logs

  1. Click  displayed against the respective log.


    Depending on the browser settings, the file either opens in a text viewer automatically or a download confirmation window is displayed. You can view the log in a notepad or save it on local drive.

 

Once downloaded, open the log file with text editors like Notepad++. Any popular text editor program is capable of opening the log files. However, text editors used for programming displays the log files in a properly formatted manner.

The examples below shows content samples from random Platform Audit Log files and Event Audit Log files.
