OMi Quick Scan Logs – Log4j Script

This is my script to quickly obtain all OMi 10.x logs (log4j) and then scan through them to see ERRORS, WARNINGS and DEBUG events.

The script is run relative to to the time you run the script and uses the current date, this is due to limiting the amount of data as there are many logs and enteries, so its designed for the OMi  administrator to quickly see if there are any ERROR’s across the many logs files and help investigate any problems.

Script Functions:

  • Copys all the logs into a temp folder
  • Shows the size of the logs (can be very large)
  • Scans through the logs and finds ERROR, WARNING, DEBUG logs, copys them into a new file which contains the log name and log entry.

You can then look at the files created, there are three files:

  • omi_error_report.txt (Main one used, good for finding ERRORS)
  • omi_warning_report.txt
  • omi_debug_report.txt

(If you want debug info, then you will need to enable this within OMi)

The enviroment was OMi10.6 / RHEL 6.5

The script is located on github
