NAME

       FileLog - Traces File Server operations

DESCRIPTION

       The FileLog file records a trace of File Server (fileserver process) operations on the
       local machine and describes any error conditions it encounters.

       If the FileLog file does not already exist in the /var/log/openafs directory when the File
       Server starts, the server process creates it and writes initial start-up messages to it.
       If there is an existing file, the File Server renames it to FileLog.old, overwriting the
       existing FileLog.old file if it exists.

       The file is in ASCII format. Administrators listed in the /etc/openafs/server/UserList
       file can use the bos getlog command to display its contents. Alternatively, log onto the
       file server machine and use a text editor or a file display command such as the UNIX cat
       command. By default, the mode bits on the FileLog file grant the required "r" (read)
       permission to all users.

       The File Server records operations only as it completes them, and cannot recover from
       failures by reviewing the file. The log contents are useful for administrative evaluation
       of process failures and other problems.
