Setting up BMC event log file and size
Naming the event log file
/AgentSetup/pemLogName configuration variable determines the naming format of the event log. The log file is stored in
|Format and type of data||Text string (no spaces), not applicable|
|Minimum and maximum||Not applicable|
|Recommendation||If you change the name, use a name that indicates the log's purpose and origin.|
Setting the event log file size
The /AgentSetup/pemLogSize configuration variable controls the maximum size in bytes of the event log. The PEM log file is a circular file. When the file fills up, the agent deletes older events to accommodate new ones.
|Format and type of data||Numeric, bytes|
|Minimum and maximum||20480 and none
If you set the PEM log file size to 0 (zero), the events are not saved to disk and any previous PEM log file remains unmodified.
If you set the size higher than 0 but less than 20480, (minimum), the agent sets it to 1024000 (default).
|Recommendation||A larger file size stores more events in the event history but consumes more system resources. Carefully consider the size of the file.|
