The PingDirectory Server provides several classes of log publishers for parsing, aggregating, and filtering information events that occur during normal processing in the server. There are three primary types of Log Publishers: access logs, debug logs, and error logs. Each type has multiple subtypes of log files based on the log server type:
|Log Publisher Type
|Provides the requests received and responses returned by the Directory Server. The information can be used to understand the operations performed by clients and to debug problems with the client applications. It can also be used for collecting usage information for performance and capacity planning purposes. There are tools described later that can analyze the access log to provide summaries of the LDAP activity and performance.
|File-based Audit Log
|Special type of access logger that provides detailed information about changes processed within the server. Disabled by default.
|JDBC-based Access Log
|Stores access log information using a JDBC database connection. Disabled by default.
|File-based Access Logs
|Provides a character-based stream used by TextWriter Publishers as a target
for outputting log records. There are six types of file-based loggers:
|Provides information about warnings, errors, or significant events that occur within the server.
|Debug ACI Logger
|Stores debug information on ACI evaluation for any request operations against the server
|File-based Error Logs
|There are two types of File-based Error Logs:
|JDBC-based Error Logs
|Stores error log information using a JDBC database connection. Disabled by default.
|Syslog-based Error Logs
|Publishes error messages to a syslogd port.
