EP6 SP9 - where have the portal logs gone ?

Hi everybody,

I just installed the EP6 SP9 sneak preview and it works well, but I cannot find the portal log files (default log, iview log, debug log, etc.)

On our project we run SP2 and under "System Administration -> Monitoring -> Portal" you find an entry to switch on/off the individual logs. This entry does not exist anymore.

The portal log viewer shows me three log files: applications.0.log, config_audit.0.log and defaultTrace.0.trc.

If I run the Logging example from the SP9 PDK, it should write an entry to the portal (or iview ?) log. When I try to view the log entry (from within the sample), an exception is logged in the defaultTrace.0.trc file which says: "FileNotFoundException: ..../irj/root/WEB-INF/portal/logs..."

True enough: the indicated "logs"-folder does not exist. (I think this is where the SP2 logs are found.)

- Is portal logging disabled by default ?

- Is this a sneak preview bug/feature ?

- Does PortalRuntime.getLogger(IPortalConstants.IVIEW_LOGGER) not work anymore ?

Any hints/ideas are appreciated !

Cheers,

Heiko

    Hi Heiko,

    see http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/ba/0aa94076b63713e10000000a155106/frameset.htm for the changes.

    The FileNotFoundException is really funny... this was not only SP2, but it holded officially only until about April last year or so (with around Patch 4); anyhow, some developers at SAP must have said "Hey, we have always been logging there, we will continue.", so that from month to month, very slowly, the logs had moved to ...clusterservermanagerslogportallogs.

    Hope it helps

    PS: No response on New sort order is not updated in view (HTMLB table) ?! I really like it to get some feedback, good or bad... 😊

      Hi Detlev,

      yep, thanks. That solved my problem. I was just quite confused because the PDK sample still uses the old log files ....

      Cheers,

      PS. I didn't have the time yet to toy around with the sortable table. You'll have feedback by next week.
