Oracle Access Manager (OAM) WebGate - Logs

The oblog_config_wg.xml file is used to control various logging configurations. You can determine the locatation of the oblog_config_wg.xml file by first checking the main WebGate configuration file. In this example, the oblog_config_wg.xml file is located in the /opt/oracle/Middleware/IHS90_Webgate/ directory.

WebGateInstanceDir "/opt/oracle/Middleware/IHS90_Webgate"

 

The oblog_config_wg.xml file will determine the location of the oblog.log file.

<NameValPair
  ParamName="FILE_NAME"
  Value="/var/log/webgate/oblog.log">
</NameValPair>

 

The oblog_config_wg.xml file will also control at what level logging occurs. Following are the log levels that can be used.

  • LOGLEVEL_INFO
  • LOGLEVEL_WARNING
  • LOGLEVEL_FATAL
  • LOGLEVEL_DEBUG1
  • LOGLEVEL_DEBUG2
  • LOGLEVEL_DEBUG3
  • LOGLEVEL_TRACE
  • LOGLEVEL_ECID

 

Log Threshold

The oblog_config_wg.xml file also controls the log threshold. In this example, the log level for the threshold if INFO.

<NameValPair
  ParamName="LOG_THRESHOLD_LEVEL"
  Value="LOGLEVEL_INFO">
</NameValPair>

 

Log Level

In this example, the log level if INFO.

<NameValPair
  ParamName="LOG_LEVEL"
  Value="LOGLEVEL_INFO">
</NameValPair>

 

Restart web server

There is no need to restart anything for these changes to take effect. In fact, the opening line in the comment block at the top of the oblog_config_wg.xml file states:

<!--  Changes to this file will be automatically taken into  effect  -->
<!--  in one minute. This does not require any server restart.       -->

 

oblog.log

This is an example of a typical oblog.log file when the log level is INFO. In this example, events are not written to the log. Changing the log level to TRACE would cause a large number of events to be written to the log in a short period of time. Tracing should only be enabled for a very short period of time, to prevent the logs from growing to be too large.
