Useful Information about LOG & OUT Files

Recently we came around a scenario whether the naming convention of the out files need to be changed.After some R&D we find some good document regarding this..

Where do concurrent request or manager logfiles and output files go?
The concurrent manager first looks for the environment variable
$APPLCSF. If this is set, it creates a path using two other
environment variables: $APPLLOG and $APPLOUT
It places log files in $APPLCSF/$APPLLOG, output files go in
$APPLCSF/$APPLOUT

So for example, if you have this environment set:
$APPLCSF = /u01/appl/common
$APPLLOG = log
$APPLOUT = out

The concurrent manager will place log files in /u01/appl/common/log,
and output files in /u01/appl/common/out
Note that $APPLCSF must be a full, absolute path, and the other two
are directory names.

If $APPLCSF is not set, it places the files under the product top of
the application associated with the request. For example, a PO report
would go under $PO_TOP/$APPLLOG and $PO_TOP/$APPLOUT
Logfiles go to: /u01/appl/po/9.0/log
Output files to: /u01/appl/po/9.0/out
All these directories must exist and have the correct permissions.

Note that all concurrent requests produce a log file, but not necessarily
an output file.
Concurrent manager logfiles follow the same convention, and will be
found in the $APPLLOG directory



What are the logfile and output file naming conventions?
Request logfiles: l.req


Output files: If $APPCPNAM is not set: .
If $APPCPNAM = REQID: o.out
If $APPCPNAM = USER: .out


Where: = The request id of the concurrent request
And: = The id of the user that submitted the request


Manager logfiles:


ICM logfile: Default is std.mgr, can be changed with the mgrname
startup parameter
Concurrent manager log: w.mgr
Transaction manager log: t.mgr
Conflict Resolution manager log: c.mgr


Where: is the concurrent process id of the manager
