Keon Registration Authority
Reducing level of logging to prevent high rate of log file growth
|Issue||How to change the log level of RSA Keon Certificate Authority log files|
|Resolution||RSA Keon Certificate Authority Keon and Keon Registration Authority products use a Apache web server engine as a base component of the server architecture. To change the log level of the log files, edit the httpd.conf file in the <install-dir>/WebServer/conf directory. Modify the LogLevel in each server instance related to the file you would like to change.|
The log level can be changed for any virtual host defined in httpd.conf. For example, to modify the log level of events for the Enrollment Server, search the httpd.conf file under the Enrollment Server Virtual Host.
To change the logging in the enroll-cipher.log file, look for the LogLevel setting for the SSL Log.
Look for the following entry in the httpd.conf file:
# General setup for the virtual host
LogLevel adjusts the verbosity of the messages recorded in the error logs (see ErrorLog directive). The following levels are available, in order of decreasing significance:
Level - Description
emerg - Emergencies - system is unusable.
alert - Action must be taken immediately.
crit - Critical Conditions.
error - Error conditions.
warn - Warning conditions.
notice - Normal but significant condition.
info - Informational.
debug - Debug-level messages
When a particular level is specified, messages from all other levels of higher significance will be reported as well. For instance, when LogLevel info is specified, then messages with log levels of notice and warn will also be posted.
Using a level of at least crit is recommended by Apache Documentation.
NOTE: This solution only relates to the log files generated under the <install-dir>/WebServer/logs Directory
