Write to the cconsole.log file, the operator console log.

Background Information

Caché reports general messages, system errors, certain operating system errors, and network errors through an operator console facility. On Windows, there is no operator console as such and all console messages are sent to the cconsole.log file in the Caché system manager directory (install-dir/mgr). For Caché systems on UNIX® platforms, you can send operator console messages to the cconsole.log file or the console terminal.

For more information, see “Monitoring Log Files” in the chapter “Monitoring Caché Using the Management Portal” in the Caché Monitoring Guide.

The name of this file is configurable; see “Advanced Memory Settings” in the Caché Additional Configuration Settings Reference.
