Adapter and Collector Log Files
You can review adapter errors in the adapter and collector log files, which can be viewed in the vROps UI or in an external log viewer.
- Adapter log files are located in the $VCOPS_BASE/user/log/adapters/NetAppHCIAdapter/ folder.
- Collector log files are located in the $VCOPS_BASE/user/log/ folder.
To set the base log level for the collector in vROps:
- Navigate to Administration > Logs .
- Expand the MASTER folder, then select the COLLECTOR folder.
- Click the Edit Properties icon.
In the Root logger level drop-down menu, select the desired option:
- The default logging level is warning.
- To troubleshoot issues, set the logging level to info.
To view detailed messages, including micro steps, queries, and returned results, set the logging level to debug.Note: If you set the logging level to debug , log files can become large very quickly. Set the logging level to debug only for short periods of time.
For more information about viewing log files and modifying levels, refer to the vROps online help.
