Create Log Interval Configuration
Interval Logging allows you to collect resource usage data from the CA SDM servers. The collected interval log is used to analyze and troubleshoot any performance or memory-related issues in the CA SDM servers. You can also share the collected data with CACA Support Online to help identify and resolve CA SDM server problems.

Interval Logging allows you to collect resource usage data from the CA SDM servers. The collected interval log is used to analyze and troubleshoot any performance or memory-related issues in the CA SDM servers. You can also share the collected data with CA Support Online to help identify and resolve CA SDM server problems.
For Windows, install and add the pslist.exe tool to the windows OS %PATH% environment variable on each of the CA SDM servers.
To collect the usage data on the CA SDM servers, add the servers to the Interval Log Configuration list. Select the type of data you want to collect from each server, and change the logging options for the servers.
For example, if you select only the CPU usage option for a particular server, the utility collects the server CPU usage data.
Follow these steps:
- SelectSystem,Interval Loggingfrom theAdministrationtab.
- ClickCreate Newto add an interval logging configuration.
- Complete the fields as appropriate for the configuration.
- Server NameSpecifies the server for which you want to collect the log data. Use the Search icon to view the list of servers you can add for the interval logging.
- Recurrence IntervalSpecifies the time interval during which the log data is collected for the server in hh:mm:ss format. For example, if the recurrence interval is set to 3 minutes, the log data is collected for every 3 minutes.
- Default: 3 minutes
- Minimum: 2 minutes
- EnabledIndicates whether logging is enabled or disabled for the server. If enabled, log data is generated for the server.
- Record StatusIndicates whether the interval logging configuration is active or inactive.
- Scheduled Start DateSpecifies the start date and time for collecting the log data. If you do not enter a start date, interval logging starts immediately till the configuration is active, enabled, or scheduled end date.
- Scheduled End DateSpecifies the end date and time for collecting the log data. If you do not enter an end date, interval logging continues to run till the configuration is active and enabled.
- Select the appropriate interval log you want to collect from the server. For example, select CPU Usage if you want to collect the log for CPU usage data.
Depending on the selected server type, the interval logging options are enabled or disabled for the server.
- CPU UsageCollect the CPU usage statistics for the server by executing the pslist - x on Windows, or “ps” on Unix.
- Memory UsageCollects the memory usage data for the server by executing the pslist - m on Windows, or “ps” on Unix.
- Network StatusCollects the information of all active connections and network statistics by executing the netstat /b or /a.
- Task ListCollects the application and services information for all the tasks running on the server.
- Web Session CountsCollects the CA SDM sessions and user statistics for the web engine processes by executing the pdm_webstat command.
- Server StatusCollect the information about all CA SDM daemons or processes on the server by executing the pdm_status command.
- DB ReportCollects the information of database record types by executing the db_report command.
- Virtual DB InfoCollects the information that is related to queued database requests by executing the pdm_vdbinfo command.
- List Server ConnectionsCollects the information on active connections for the server by executing the pdm_listconn command.
- List Slump ProcessesCollects the information about slump connections and processes by executing the slstat command.
- ClickSave.The server is configured for interval logging.
- (Optional) Repeat Steps 1-5 to create more interval log configurations.
