BOS_GETLOG(8)		     AFS Command Reference		 BOS_GETLOG(8)

       bos_getlog - Prints a server process's log file

       bos getlog -server <machine name> -file <log file to examine>
	   [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth] [-localauth] [-help]

       bos getl -s <machine name> -f <log file to examine>
	   [-c <cell name>] [-n] [-l] [-h]

       The bos getlog command displays on the standard output stream the
       specified log file from the machine named by the -server argument. The
       BOS Server fetches the log file from the /usr/afs/logs directory unless
       an alternate pathname is provided as part of the -file argument.

       Log files can grow quite large, especially for the database server
       processes. To keep them to a manageable size, periodically either use
       the UNIX rm command to truncate each log file, or use the bos restart
       command to restart each process.

       It can take up to five minutes after the file is removed or process
       restarted for the space occupied by a log file to become available.

       -server <machine name>
	   Indicates the server machine from which to retrieve the log file.
	   Identify the machine by IP address or its host name (either fully-
	   qualified or abbreviated unambiguously). For details, see bos(8).

       -file <log file to examine>
	   Names the log file to display. If a filename only is provided, the
	   BOS Server fetches the log file from the /usr/afs/logs directory;
	   the standard values are:

	       The Authentication Server (kaserver) log file.

	       The Backup Server (buserver) log file.

	       The BOS Server (bosserver) log file.

	       The File Server (fileserver) log file.

	       The Salvager (salvager) log file.

	       The Volume Location (VL) Server (vlserver) log file.

	       The Volume Server (volserver) log file.

	   If a pathname and filename are provided, the log file is retrieved
	   from the indicated directory. Partial pathnames are interpreted
	   relative to the /usr/afs/logs directory.

       -cell <cell name>
	   Names the cell in which to run the command. Do not combine this
	   argument with the -localauth flag. For more details, see bos(8).

	   Assigns the unprivileged identity "anonymous" to the issuer. Do not
	   combine this flag with the -localauth flag. For more details, see

	   Constructs a server ticket using a key from the local
	   /usr/afs/etc/KeyFile file. The bos command interpreter presents the
	   ticket to the BOS Server during mutual authentication. Do not
	   combine this flag with the -cell or -noauth options. For more
	   details, see bos(8).

	   Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
	   are ignored.

       The output is preceded by the line

	  Fetching log file '<filename>'...

       The remainder of the output depends on the particular log file.

       The following example displays the FileLog file from the machine

	  % bos getlog -server -file FileLog
	  Fetching log file 'FileLog'...
	  Sun Nov 8 04:00:34 1998 File server starting
	  Sun Nov 8 04:00:39 1998 Partition /vicepa:  attached 21 volumes;
				  0 volumes not attached
	  Sun Nov 8 04:00:40 1998 File Server started Sun Nov 8 04:00:40
	  Mon Nov 9 21:45:06 1998 CB: RCallBack (zero fid probe in host.c)
				  failed for host 28cf37c0.22811

       The issuer must be listed in the /usr/afs/etc/UserList file on the
       machine named by the -server argument, or must be logged onto a server
       machine as the local superuser "root" if the -localauth flag is

       When a server is in restricted mode, bos getlog can only return the
       contents of the salvager's log.
