Use the Log Analyzer

To view the service or activity.log using the Log Analyzer...

  1. Change directory to: $WAS_HOME/bin.
  2. Run the waslogbr script file...

    This starts the Log Analyzer interface.

  3. Select File | Open.

  4. Navigate to the directory containing the service or activity log file.

  5. Select the service or activity log file and click Open.

  6. To analyze the records, right-click on a record in the tree on the left, select UnitOfWorkView from the right-click menu, and select Analyze. Now any records with a green check mark next to them match a record in the symptom database. When you select a check-marked record, you will see an explanation of the problem in the lower-right-hand pane.

    When starting the Log Analyzer for the first time, or after the Log Analyzer preferences files of the users have been deleted, the following message is displayed in the Log Analyzer's shell window

    Cannot open input stream for waslogbrsys

    You can disregard this message, as it is informational and not indicative of abnormal operation.

    WAS includes the following Log Analyzer files for use with the WebSphere Commerce Suite...

    • $WAS_HOME/bin:

      • wcslogbrsys.cfg
      • wcslogbrsys.ini

    • $WAS_HOME/properties/logbr:

      • wcsanalyzers.xml
      • wcslogtypes.xml
      • wcsrecdef.xml

    You can ignore these files.
