Does anyone know, what the logfile „rmeextn_ctm.log” is for and how to configure the logging
to it? This file is filling up with over 30’000 DEBUG messages every day. If I compare logtimes
with times of running jobs, it looks like “Inventory Collection” and “Archive Poller”
are responsible for these messages.
I found several locations where we can configure log-levels or enable/disable logging. But
none of these possibilities helped us to get rid of the DEBUG’s in „rmeextn_ctm.log”.
We are using CiscoWorks2000 with LMS 3.2 and RME 4.3.1 on Solaris.
Thank's for Help
Check out the spreadsheet for your version of LMS to see what procces writes in the logfile
Also I think there is a reset button to put all logging to their default values.
I checked all the GUI-possibilities as well as the properties-files mentioned in the spreadsheet. There
is nowhere a log-level of DEBUG configured. And a grep through all the properties-files showed me
no sign of a logfile called “rmeextn_ctm.log”.
I think the process that is generating the logs is CTMJrmServer
You can temporary stop the process to see if it stops the log file from growing
You should have similar Reset button in your version of windows.
We have not tried to stop CTMJrmServer, as we are not sure about unwanted side effects.
What we tried is: Configuring the log-level for CTMJrmServer to DEBUG. Then we see, as expected, in different log-files DEBUG Messages. After configuring back to log-level ERROR, messages in the other log-files have gone, just rmeextn_ctm.log is still receiving them.
Resetting the whole log-level settings to its defaults, doesn’t change anything.
As this writing of DEBUG messages has no (at least no known) impact on the functionality, we are giving up the search and hope this “problem” has been solved in the next release.
have a look at the value of "Category.RMEExtnCTMOperations.LogLevel=" in this config file:
this is the content of the file on my LMS 4.0 test installation:
