NAME

       BackupLog - Traces Backup Server operations

DESCRIPTION

       The BackupLog file records a trace of Backup Server (buserver process) operations on the
       local machine and describes any error conditions it encounters.

       If the BackupLog file does not already exist in the /var/log/openafs directory when the
       Backup Server starts, the server process creates it and writes initial start-up messages
       to it. If there is an existing file, the Backup Server renames it to BackupLog.old,
       overwriting the existing BackupLog.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 on to the
       machine and use a text editor or a file display command such as the UNIX cat command. By
       default, the mode bits on the BackupLog file grant the required "r" (read) permission to
       all users.

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