Publish log files

Any errors that are encountered during the publishing process are written to log and trace files.

SystemOut.log and SystemErr.log

Contains any information that is written to standard output and standard error during store publish. SystemOut.log and SystemErr.log are in the following directory:

WC_profiledir/logs/server_name

WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWCDE_installdir/wasprofile/logs/server1

messages.txt

Contains messages from the loading utilities part of the publishing process.

Line or column numbers that are mentioned in these messages refer to the files store-data-assets.xml, which is created after idresgen utility is run, and store-data-assets-resolved.xml, which is created after the massload utility is run. Line or column numbers that are mentioned in error messages refer to these input files: store-data-assets.resolved.xml in the case of the massload utility and store-data-assets.xml in the case of idresgen utility.

For IBM i OS operating system Contains messages from the loading utilities part of the publishing process. Line or column numbers that are mentioned in these messages refer to the file store-data-assets-resolved.xml, which is created after the massload utility is run. Line or column numbers that are mentioned in error messages refer to this input file.

messages.txt is in the following directory:
  • AIXLinuxWindowsWC_installdir/instances/instance_name/logs
  • For IBM i OS operating systemWC_userdir/instances/instance_name/logs
  • WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWCDE_installdir/logs
Note: To configure the messages.txt log file (that is, adjust the log level or other options), edit the following file:
  • WC_installdir/instances/instance_name/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml
  • For IBM i OS operating systemWC_userdir/instances/instance_name/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml
  • WCDE_installdir/conf/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml
Note: There are two locations of the WCALoggerConfig.xml file. WC_installdir/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml is used by the loader utilities when run from the command line, and the file WC_installdir/instances/instance_name/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml is used by the loader utilities in the server context, for example during the store publish process.

trace.txt

Contains trace information for the loading utilities and idresgen utility parts of the publishing process. By default, trace.txt is turned off. By default trace.txt is a circular log. trace.txt is in the following directory:

  • WC_installdir/instances/instance_name/logs
  • For IBM i OS operating systemWC_userdir/instances/instance_name/logs
  • WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWCDE_installdir/logs
To configure the trace.txt log file (that is, adjust the log level or other options), edit the following file:
  • WC_installdir/instances/instance_name/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml
  • For IBM i OS operating systemWC_userdir/instances/instance_name/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml
  • WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWCDE_installdir/conf/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml

Where workspace_name is workspace_db2 Oracleor workspace_oracle depending on the database you are using.

For IBM i OS operating system

RESWCSID.txt

Contains messages from the idresgen utility part of the publishing process. Line or column numbers that are mentioned in messages refer to the input files, for example the store-data-assets.xml file. RESWCSID.txt is in the following directory:WC_userdir/instances/instance_name/logs

Note: To configure the RESWCSID.txt log file (that is, adjust the log level or other options), edit the following file: WC_userdir/instances/instance_name/xml/loader/WCALoggerConfig.xml

trace.log

Part of the WebSphere Application Server trace logs. Contains trace information for the publishing process, if the WC_DEVTOOLS trace component is enabled. trace.log is in the following directory:
  • AIXLinuxWindowsWAS_installdir/logs/instance_name
  • For IBM i OS operating systemWAS_userdir/Base/instance_name/logs/WC_instance_name
  • WebSphere Commerce DeveloperWCDE_installdir/wasprofile/logs/server1
