Linux logs

Our Linux web server logs are available to authenticated Purdue developers through a custom log viewer utility. From this utility, you can select any system, virtual host (Apache HTTPD), Tomcat instance (Apache Tomcat), and log you want to view. Logs from multi-node systems (such as the PPWC production environment) are merged on the fly.

Note: Large logs can take a bit of time to access initially and some browsers may not wait long enough (Chrome seems to behave this way). In general, the Apache HTTPD error_log files are most interesting to developers and are much smaller than the access_log files.
