Question Need error reports/logs for SUSE (SLES) Linux 8.1


Hi,

I need error logs/reports related with Hardware/OS/Performance/Networks for SUSE linux 8.1.

I know the file path /var/log/messages for general error logs but It would be better If you give me suggestion that has more clarity on error logs/reports for this same.

Please let me know If you looking for more info about this.

Thank you,
Prem

That's a bit of a general qn. Normally, most logs are stored under /var and you may have to drill down further eg /var/log or even deeper, depending on log in question.

If you're using SLES, I'll add that you need to call Novell support...SLES is a PAY FOR version of Linux, and you're paying for support. Also, there's no way anyone of us here know what's been set up on that server to collect/gather that data, how long it's been running, or where the data is going. Best thing to do (aside from calling Novell), is to ask the systems administrator.
