Gets log events. You can get log events for a domain or services. You can write log events to a file or display them on the screen.
To fetch log events for a domain, you must have permission on the domain. To fetch log events for a service, you must have permission on the service.
The infacmd isp GetLog command uses the following syntax:
GetLog <-DomainName|-dn> domain_name <-UserName|-un> user_name <-Password|-pd> password [<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain] [<-Gateway|-hp> gateway_host1:port gateway_host2:port...] [<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds] [<-StartDate|-sd> start_date_time] [<-EndDate|-ed> end_date_time] [<-ReverseOrder|-ro>] [<-Format|-fm> format_TEXT_XML_BIN] [<-OutputFile|-lo> output_file_name] [<-ServiceType|-st> service_type AS|BW|CMS|DIS|ES|IS|MM|MRS|RMS|RS|SCH|SEARCH|TDM|TDW|WS|DOMAIN] [<-ServiceName|-sn> service_name] [<-Severity|-svt> FATAL_ERROR_WARNING_INFO_TRACE_DEBUG]
The following table describes infacmd isp GetLog options and arguments:
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
gateway_host1:port gateway_host2:port ...
Required if the gateway connectivity information in the domains.infa file is out of date. The host names and port numbers for the gateway nodes in the domain.
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. If you omit this option, infacmd uses the timeout value specified in the INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT environment variable. If no value is specified in the environment variable, the default of 180 seconds is used.
Optional. Returns log events starting from this date and time. Enter date and time in one of the following formats:
  • MM/dd/yyyy_hh:mm:ssa_Z
  • MM/dd/yyyy_hh:mma_Z
  • MM/dd/yyyy_hh:mm:ssa
  • MM/dd/yyyy_hh:mma
  • yyyy-MM-dd_HH:mm:ss_Z
  • yyyy-MM-dd_HH:mm_Z
  • yyyy-MM-dd_HH:mm:ss
  • yyyy-MM-dd_HH:mm
  • MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ssa Z
  • MM/dd/yyyy hh:mma Z
  • MM/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ssa
  • MM/dd/yyyy hh:mma
  • yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss_Z
  • yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm_Z
  • yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm:ss
  • yyyy-MM-dd HH:mm
  • MM/dd/yyyy
  • yyyy-MM-dd
Where “a” is an am/pm marker (“a” for a.m. and “p” for p.m.) and “Z” is a time zone marker (for example,“-0800” or “GMT”).
Optional. Returns log events ending by this date and time. Enter date and time in the same format as the StartDate option.
If you enter an end date that is before the start date, GetLog returns no log events.
Optional. Fetches log events according to most recent timestamp.
Optional. Format for log events. Valid types include:
  • Text
  • XML
  • Bin (binary)
If you choose binary, then you must specify a file name using the OutputFile option.
If you do not specify a format, infacmd uses text format with lines wrapped at 80 characters.
Name and file path where you want to write the log file. By default, the Service Manager uses the server\infa_shared\log directory on the master gateway node.
Omit this option to display the log events on the screen.
If you choose binary as the output file type, you must specify a file name using this option.
Optional. Type of service for which you want to fetch log events. You can specify one service type.
Omit this option to fetch log events for all service types.
Service types include:
  • AS. Analyst Service
  • BW. SAP BW Service
  • CMS. Content Management Service
  • DIS. Data Integration Service
  • ES. Email Service
  • IS. PowerCenter Integration Service
  • MM. Metadata Manager Service
  • MRS. Model Repository Service
  • RMS. Resource Manager Service
  • RS. PowerCenter Repository Service
  • SCH. Scheduler Service
  • SEARCH. Search Service
  • TDM. Test Data Manager Service
  • TDW. Test Data Warehouse Service
  • WS. Web Services Hub
  • DOMAIN. Domain
Optional. Name of the service for which you want to fetch log events. To enter a name that contains a space or other non-alphanumeric character, enclose the name in quotation marks.
Optional. Message severity. Severity types include:
  • Fatal
  • Error
  • Warning
  • Info
  • Trace
  • Debug
