You can also change the logging level for SEP sesam modules in the
<SESAM ROOT>/var/ini/debug.ini of the SEP sesam Server installation for specific module by selecting a value between 0-6 (0=ERROR, 1=EMERGENCY, 2=WARNING, 3=NOTICE, 4=INFO, 5=DEBUG, 6=TRACE).
Setting log level for backup
You can set the desired log level for each backup task in its properties:
- In the Main Selection -> Tasks -> By clients, select your client and double-click the backup task for which you want to define the log level. The task properties window is displayed.
- Click the Options tab and under the Additional call arguments in the Save options field, enter the desired verbose level in the form: -v <No.>. For example, setting the level to -v 3 will write information on the item's processing into the log file.
Setting log level for restore
By default, the log level for restore is set to 1 (-v 1) if 1000 or fewer items are selected. You can set the desired log level for each restore operation in its properties:
- From the SEP sesam GUI menu bar, select Activities -> Restore. The New restore task window appears.
- In the last Save and start step of the restore wizard, click the Expert options button. Under the Options from the Verbose level drop-down list, select the desired log level for your restore.
