Other log files in the logs directory

Apart from the cogserver.log, there are many other log files in the logs directory. Logs for Cognos Configuration, the Tomcat log, the dispatcher log and so on. We will look at the dispatcher logs in a future post. The other logs are useful too but not very significant.

(Do note that some of the traces are also redirected to files in this folder. For example the CAM tracing which is done using IPF, will create an AAAClient.log in the logs directory. Again, we will look at traces in a later post.)

Usually, as mentioned in the previous post on the cogserver.log, it is better to send in the whole logs folder to support. It is advisable to rename the logs folder appropriately as it helps the analyst to map the logs to the Cognos architecture.

In the next post, we will look at the cogstartup.xml file.
