About the nbcplogs utility
When you troubleshoot a problem, you must gather and copy the correct logs to debug the issue. The log types (legacy, vxul, vm, pbx,...) may be in many places. The process of getting the logs to Veritas technical support can be difficult and time consuming.
By default, nbcplogs now runs the nbsu utility and collects nbsu information for the host system. This capability saves time and keystrokes in gathering information. The utility also gathers additional log information for clusters and pack history information.
If you have a case ID provided by Technical Support of the form ########, rename the log files with the case ID number. Then manually upload the files to the Veritas Evidence Server. For additional assistance, see:
This utility supports the following types of search algorithms as options on the nbcplogs command.
--filecopy. File copy is the default condition. It copies the entire log file. File copy with compression is usually enough to get the job done.
--fast. Fast search uses a binary search to strip out the lines that are outside the time frame of the file. This mechanism is useful for copying large log files such as bpdbm. This option is seldom needed and should be used with caution.
The default condition is the file copy, which copies the entire log file. A fast search algorithm uses a binary search to strip out the lines that are outside the time frame of the file. This mechanism is useful for copying large log files such as bpdbm.
The nbcplogs utility is intended to simplify the process of copying logs by specifying the following options:
A time frame for the logs.
The log types that you want to collect.
Bundling and in-transit data compression.
In addition, you can preview the amount of log data to be copied.
A complete description of nbcplogs is in the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.
