All (normal) messages logged by the CA DRAS server task are of the format:
Mmm dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss CAHFxxxnnnl
This consists of the date and time (
Mmm, dd, yyyy hh:mm:ss) the message was issued, the messages name (CAHFcccnnnl where ccc is the CAHF component, nnn, the number; and l, the severity level), and descriptive text.
Additional messages may be relayed by CA DRAS to the client and the log originating from one of the Repository Agents, CA Dispatch, or CA View. These typically have the same message name prefix as the agent interfaces base product.
Messages issued by the Repository Agents are contained in the message documentation of the repository products. For more information and suggested actions for the base message, see the product-specific documentation.
