Configuring MCS Event Logging

Events can be used to store and monitor a running log of events that occur within your system. Each MCS-managed product or service can log its own events in the MCS event log; the types of events that can be logged are specified by the product.

After event logging has been enabled, you can further manage events by filtering the events to be logged and managing the log files in the way that best suits your needs.

To configure event logging options in MCS
  1. Enable event logging as desired:
    To enable event logging in

    ID management From the Management Settings Events page, select the events to log.

    Error logging is selected by default. To minimize unnecessary consumption of system resources, select additional event logging options only when troubleshooting ID management activities.

    Security From the Security Services Configuration page, select a Log Level other than Disabled.
    Note Server management events are automatically logged.
  2. In the MCS left pane under Services, click Events.

  3. Under Events, click Manage Events.

  4. To configure event logging, from the Settings, File Mgmt and Filters pages, modify the settings as needed.

    For example, in the Settings page, you can specify whether to create a new log file when the maximum log file size is reached, or to overwrite an existing file.

    For details on any of the options on these pages, click Help in the upper-right corner of the page while it is displayed.

  5. Click Save.
