About Viewing Logs

The UCS-SCU Logs functionality allows you to take corrective action by examining your server logs. UCS-SCU provides the following types of logs:

  • System Logs
  • System Event Logs

For more information on viewing these logs, go to Viewing System Logs and Viewing System Event Logs.

Viewing System Logs

By viewing system logs, you can determine if any error has occurred and take the required corrective action.

The system log file displays events that are logged by the operating system components. These events are often predetermined by the operating system itself. System log files display information about device changes, device drivers, system changes, events, operations, and more.

To view the system logs, follow these steps:

Procedure
    Step 1   Click Logs on the left navigation pane.
    Step 2   Click System Logs.
    Step 3   Select a filter from the filter drop-down list.
    Step 4   Click Go.

    The system log is displayed.
