FTMV30012_Dev2_NIT Request that IBM review FTM for compliance with NIT WAS Standards re: Section 22 > logging
Application Logging The WebSphere Application Server logs such as SystemOut.log and SystemErr.log are for use by WebSphere Application Server only and cannot be used by the application for any type of logging. Applications should utilize an approved logging framework to externalize logging specific to that application. Any legacy systems that are writing application logging to the WAS logs should be changed as soon as possible and must be changed upon upgrading or moving to a new system. WAS system logging is based on number of logs and size of each log. The baseline is 3 historical logs at 10 MB each. This can be adjusted to a specific system needs to keep more or larger logs to ensure there is enough history for troubleshooting purposes. It is advisable to keep 2-4 weeks of logs unless space is an issue. NIT WAS implementation standards documentation provides guidelines to the technician on specific log implementation.
