ncalogd.conf(4)                  File Formats                  ncalogd.conf(4)



NAME
       ncalogd.conf - NCA logging configuration file

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/nca/ncalogd.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  ncalogd.conf is used to configure Solaris Network Cache and Accel-
       erator ("NCA") logging. The file contains two fields, key and value.

       The status key is used to indicate if the user wants to have  NCA  log-
       ging turned on. If the value of status key is enabled, then NCA logging
       will be turned on. If the value of the status key is disabled, then NCA
       logging will not be invoked. The default value is disabled.

       The logd_path_name key specifies the absolute pathname of the log file.
       The log file must be a raw device without a filesystem or a file  on  a
       local  file  system.  The default value is /var/nca/log. logd_path_name
       can also contain a whitespace-delimited list of values for multiple log
       files  to  a maximum of 16. If you specify multiple log files, you must
       enclose the list in quotation marks ("). With multiple files, NCA  log-
       ging moves to the next file on the list once the file size specified by
       logd_file_size has been reached. When the last file is full,  NCA  log-
       ging  rotates back to the first file in the list. A pointer to the cur-
       rent log file is stored in /var/nca/current.

       The logd_file_size key specifies the value of the file size, in  bytes,
       allowed  for  each log file specified in by the logd_path_name key. The
       default value is 1000000 bytes.

       In order to implement changes to the ncalogd.conf file, you  will  need
       to stop and start NCA logging or reboot.

       NCA stores logs in a binary format. Use the ncab2clf(1) utility to con-
       vert the log from a binary format to the Common Log File format.

EXAMPLES
       Example 1: A Sample ncalogd.conf File

       The following is a sample ncalogd.conf file that  specifies  three  log
       files:

       #
       # NCA Log Daemon Configuration File
       #

       status=enabled
       logd_path_name="/var/nca/log1 /var/nca/log2 /var/nca/log3"
       logd_file_size=1000000


       Note  that  there is no NCA logging daemon. Logging is performed as one
       of the functions of the NCA software.

FILES
       /etc/nca/ncalogd.conf           Lists  configuration   parameters   for
                                       NCAlogging.
