HCL Workload Automation, Version 9.4

Setting sysloglocal on UNIX

About this task

If you set sysloglocal in the local options file to a positive number, HCL Workload Automation's control processes send their console and prompt messages to the syslog daemon. Setting it to -1 turns this feature off. If you set it to a positive number to enable system logging, you must also set the local option stdlistwidth to 0, or a negative number.

HCL Workload Automation's console messages correspond to the following syslog levels:

Error messages such as control process abends and file system errors.
Warning messages such as link errors and stuck job streams.
Special messages such as prompts and tellops.
Informative messages such as job launches and job and Job Scheduler state changes.

Setting sysloglocal to a positive number defines the syslog facility used by HCL Workload Automation. For example, specifying 4 tells HCL Workload Automationto use the local facility LOCAL4. After doing this, you must make the appropriate entries in the /etc/syslog.conf file, and reconfigure the syslog daemon. To use LOCAL4 and have the HCL Workload Automation messages sent to the system console, enter the following line in /etc/syslog.conf:

local4    /dev/console

To have the HCL Workload Automation error messages sent to the maestro and root users, enter the following command:

local4.err    maestro,root

The selector and action fields must be separated by at least one tab. After modifying /etc/syslog.conf, you can configure the syslog daemon by entering the following command:

kill -HUP `cat /etc/syslog.pid`
