About the Logging Assistant
The Logging Assistant is a helpful tool that can shorten the time that is required to set up and collect debug logs and other information. Because Logging Assistant automatically performs a number of functions, you can avoid the problems that are associated with manually logging into NetBackup hosts, creating log directories, and changing logging levels.
Use the Logging Assistant under the guidance of Veritas Support.
The Logging Assistant uses a series of wizards to help quickly troubleshoot a problem. Depending on the category of NetBackup problem, the tool suggests the possible hosts that may be involved in the problem and the logs that should be enabled on those hosts.
While collecting NetBackup logs using Logging Assistant, the total NetBackup log size may increase. If you have enabled theproperty on the dialog box and the total NetBackup log size reaches its high water mark, logs are deleted. Logs that you want to retain may also be deleted. To avoid the deletion of logs that you want to retain, you need to disable the property while you collect logs using the Logging Assistant. Alternatively, you can set the property to a value higher than the current value, so that the important logs are not deleted before the log collection is complete.
No special licensing is required. However, you must have root permissions for UNIX and administrator privileges for Windows to use the Logging Assistant.
