How to control the amount of information written to legacy logging files
You can set legacy logging levels to increase the amount of information that NetBackup processes write in the logs.
The following settings affect legacy logging, except media and device management.
On UNIX, add a VERBOSE entry in the /usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf file.
If you enter VERBOSE without a value, the verbose value defaults to 1. For more log detail, enter VERBOSE = 2 or a higher value. This setting affects legacy logging only.
High verbose values can cause debug logs to become very large.
Set the logging level for individual processes.
Also, you can set the logging level of an individual process to a negative value in the bp.conf file as follows:
<processname>_VERBOSE = -2 completely disables logs for the corresponding process.
Media and device management legacy logging has two levels: not verbose (the default) and verbose. To set the verbose (higher) level, add the word VERBOSE to the
vm.conf file. Create the file if necessary. Restart ltid and vmd after you add the VERBOSE entry. The
vm.conf file is located in the following directory:
