When troubleshooting an issue on the Linux endpoint, it may be required to put seosd in debug. To put it in debug with no downtime, follow these instructions.


First, change debug_level in the [seosd] section of seos.ini. There are two options to achieve this.

Option 1- Use the seini command
# seini -f seosd.debug_level   ((check the current value))
# seini -s seosd.debug_level low ((sets the value to low))
# seini -f seosd.debug_level ((verify the value has been set))

Option 2- Use selang
# selang
AC> env config
AC> er config seos.ini section(seosd) token(debug_level) value(low)

After the value has been changed, use the command below to reload seos.ini.
# secons -rl

Additional Information

After getting the logs, follow the same instructions to set it back to the original value. The default value for debug_level is "critical".

These instructions will only work with seosd. If seoswd needs to be put in debug as well, then the daemons will need to be restarted.
