Where’s the Oracle 11i log?

Filed under: Uncategorized — kkempf @ 3:20 pm

In 11i, I often have to go hunting for logs.  This will be a “work in progress” reference post to see where to look.  I know some of these logs are rather useless, especially those in $APPLCSF/APPLLOG, such as the adapcctl.txt log which tells you that apache was started or stopped, but not when.

Please feel free to contribute via comments!





adcmctl (concurrent manager) log
$APPLCSF/$APPLLOG/adcmctl*.txt (typically $COMN_TOP/admin/log/SID_host)

workflow notification mailer
$APPLCSF/$APPLLOG/FNDCPGSC*.txt (typically $COMN_TOP/admin/log/SID_host)

$APPLCSF/$APPLLOG/rep60*.txt (typically $COMN_TOP/admin/log/SID_host)

11g Database Alert Log

11g Database Listener Log

11i Concurrent Managers Main Log
$COMN_TOP/admin/log/SID_host/SID_date.mgr ($APPL_CSF/APPL_LOG)

Apache logs

Apache Jserv logs


  1. Kevin,
    The only suggestion I’d make is to reference $IAS_CONFIG_HOME for the location of where Apache/Apache JServ logs are located in the event that a “shared techstack” implementation is in place

    • Noted. I’m actually testing adding a node per that same reference so I’ll update this when I see what it looks like.
