Control Panels and Configuration Tools
A Jetty web server hosts the Main and Server Control Panels. There are two log files applicable to this component. The Server Log contains internal server activities and is generated the first time each day that Jetty is started. The Access Log contains the save operations performed by administrators.
The log file is web.log.
This file rolls over when it reaches 100M in size and 5 files are archived. These settings are configured from the Main Control Panel > Settings tab > Logs > Log Settings section. Select Control Panel – Server from the Log Settings to Configure drop-down list. Define the log level, rollover size and number of files to keep archived.

Web.log can be viewed and downloaded from Server Control Panel > Log Viewer.
The Control Panel access log file contains the save operations performed by administrators. When any user that is a member of the delegated administration groups saves changes in the Main or Server Control Panels, this activity is logged into the web_access log. This is a CSV formatted log file with the delimiter being

Server Control Panel - Cluster Monitor
A special storage mounted at cn=clustermonitor is used to store historical information about the RadiantOne service’s statistics including CPU usage, memory usage, disk space, disk latency, and connection usage. This historical information is used to populate the graphs shown on the Server Control Panel > Dashboard tab. An example is shown below.

The cluster monitor store is configurable from Main Control Panel > Settings > Logs > Clustermonitor. You can enable/disable the store from here and indicate a max age for the entries to prevent the contents from growing too large.
If you disable the cluster monitor store, no graphs display on the Server Control Panel > Dashboard tab.

For auditing purposes, contextbuilder_audit.log can be used. This log contains details about the files that were saved/created/deleted, the date/time the change occurred, and the current OS user that was using Context Builder.
VDSCONFIG Command Line Utility
Configuration commands issued using the vdsconfig utility can be logged. To enable logging of configuration requests using vdsconfig, navigate to <RLI_HOME>/config/advanced and edit features.properties. Set vdsconfig.logging.enabled=true. Restart the RadiantOne service. If RadiantOne is deployed in a cluster, restart the service on all nodes. The log settings are configurable and initialized from <RLI_HOME>/config/logging/log4j2-vdsconfig.json
The default audit log is <RLI_HOME>/logs/vdsconfig.log.
If you want the admin name that issued the command logged, make sure you have enabled the setting to Require a UserID and Password to Execute Commands. For information about this setting, see the RadiantOne Command Line Configuration Guide.
