Viewing NetBackup for NDMP logs
The following procedure describes how to view NetBackup logs.
The legacy and unified logging files can consume a lot of disk space. Delete the log files when you are finished and set logging to a lower level of detail.
- In the NetBackup Administration Console in the left pane, expand Host Properties > Media Servers, and right-click on the server name in the right pane.
- From the pop-up, select Properties, then click Logging and set the Global logging level to 5.
This increases logging detail to the highest level, for both unified logging and legacy logging.
NDMP backup performance may in some cases be adversely affected when the logging level is set to 4 or 5. The performance effect may be serious enough to cause NDMP backup failures. Reduce the logging level to 3 or less if you encounter NDMP performance issues or backup failures.
- Click Apply and then OK.
- View the unified logging information in /usr/openv/logs (UNIX) or install_path\logs (Windows) for the following processes:
ndmpagent (originator ID 134)
ndmp (originator ID 151)
nbpem (originator ID 116)
nbjm (originator ID 117)
nbrb (originator ID 118)
- For ndmpagent logs, try the vxlogview command as follows:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/vxlogview -I ndmpagent -d T,s,x,p
- For ndmp logs, try the vxlogview command as follows:
/usr/openv/netbackup/bin/vxlogview -I ndmp -d T,s,x,p
- On the NetBackup for NDMP server, create bptm, and bpbrm legacy debug log folders in the /usr/openv/netbackup/logs directory (UNIX) or install_path\NetBackup\logs folder (Windows):
