BosLog - Traces BOS Server operations


The BosLog file records a trace of Basic OverSeer (BOS) Server (bosserver process) operations on the local machine and describes any error conditions it encounters. If the BosLog file does not already exist in the /var/log/openafs directory when the BOS Server starts, the server process creates it and writes initial start-up messages to it. The file is in ASCII format. Administrators listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList file can use the bos getlog command to display its contents. Alternatively, log onto the server machine and use a text editor or a file display command such as the UNIX cat command. By default, the mode bits on the BosLog file grant the required "r" (read) permission to all users. The BOS Server records operations only as it completes them, and cannot recover from failures by reviewing the file. The log contents are useful for administrative evaluation of process failures and other problems.
