File name format for legacy logging
NetBackup legacy logging creates debug log files in the following format:
The file names include the following elements:
The name of the user in whose context the process runs, as follows:
The month, day, and year on which NetBackup created the log file.
The counter or the rotation number for the log file. When the counter exceeds the setting for number of log files, the oldest log file is deleted.
The MAX_NUM_LOGFILES configuration parameter sets the maximum number of a legacy log file per process.
The new folder structure for non-root or non-admin invoked process logs is created under process log directory name.
Here, for non-root user usr1, a non-root username directory is created under the respective NetBackup processes.
