Managing the message log

The Message Log contains an error event list for all agents in the cluster. Message Log format is relatively free-form and descriptive. Message entries contain:

  • severity of the error being reported

  • log entry date and time

  • build number

  • message text

  • name of the agent that generated the error

Using the Message Log, you can track agent issues by severity. If an agent experienced a high number of error events, it may indicate a problem with the system setup or hardware.

The Cluster Manager automatically deletes Message Log entries older than a configurable number of days. See Administration > Server Settings, the “Message Log Keep (days)” setting.
