27.2. Log files overview

When deploying Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 with Virtualization into your network infrastructure, the host's Virtualization software uses many specific directories for important configuration, log files, and other utilities. All the Red Hat Virtualization logs files are standard ASCII files, and easily accessible with any ASCII based editor:
  • The Red Hat Virtualization main configuration directory is /etc/xen/. This directory contains the xend daemon and other virtual machine configuration files. The networking script files are found in the scripts directory).
  • All of actual log files themselves that you will consult for troubleshooting purposes reside in the /var/log/xen directory.
  • You should also know that the default directory for all virtual machine file based disk images resides in the /var/lib/xen directory.
  • Red Hat Virtualization information for the /proc file system reside in the /proc/xen/ directory.
