Managing console logs is a critical task, and one that can be complicated when multiple systems are supported. This presentation looks at ways to automate and simplify the following tasks: Keeping a daily log of all z/VM system messages, commands entered, and response messages and return codes; Keeping in the same daily log all Linux console and syslogd or syslog-ng messages for all Linux servers; Keeping the log organized without filling up spool or disk space; Easily reviewing the log online for selected periods; Storing older logs on tape for as long as required.
