System Log Controller Module

Every server running Communications Services has a SYSLOGS folder that contains system log files, and the Log Inserter uses the System Log Controller modules to transfer the system event records from the individual workstation system log files to the ION database. This module is only available in the VIP.

Overview

All client applications that run on that server can write event records to the system log files.

NOTE: “Communications Server” has been renamed to “Communications Services” and “Log Server” has been renamed to “Log Inserter” for ION Enterprise 5.0 and later versions.

Inputs

The System Log Controller module has no programmable inputs.

Setup registers

Depth

This numeric register identifies the maximum number of system events that the Log Inserter will retrieve from the system log files generated by the System Log service.

System Log Source

Select <system> from this enumerated register's list, or select the blank space to disable system logging.

Cutoff

This register allows you to specify which events you want transferred to the ION database from the system log files, based on event priority. Events with priority values less than or equal to the Cutoff you specify will not appear in the ION database.

Output registers

Event Log

The Event Log register contains the system event records for the workstation referenced in the System Log Source setup register that have been retrieved from the system log files by the Log Inserter. If the Log Inserter is run in auto-mode (the default configuration), this register is automatically linked to the Log Acquisition module. If the Log Inserter is not run in auto-mode, this register must be manually linked to a Log Acquisition module input to allow the system events to be transferred to the ION database.

Detailed module operation

The System Log Controller modules collect all of the system event messages generated by the ION applications on all of the workstations in your network. If the Log Inserter is run in auto-mode, a System Log Controller module is automatically created and configured for every workstation defined in your network configuration file. If the Log Inserter is not run in auto-mode, a System Log Controller module must be manually created, configured and linked to a Log Acquisition module using Designer.
