       ncalogd.conf - NCA logging configuration file


       The  ncalogd.conf  is used to configure Solaris Network Cache and Accelerator ("NCA") log-
       ging. The file contains two fields, key and value.

       The status key is used to indicate if the user wants to have NCA logging turned on. If the
       value  of  status  key is enabled, then NCA logging will be turned on. If the value of the
       status key is disabled, then NCA logging will not be invoked. The default  value  is  dis-

       The  logd_path_name key specifies the absolute pathname of the log file. The log file must
       be a raw device without a filesystem or a file on a local file system. The  default  value
       is /var/nca/log. logd_path_name can also contain a whitespace-delimited list of values for
       multiple log files to a maximum of 16. If you specify multiple log files, you must enclose
       the  list  in quotation marks ("). With multiple files, NCA logging moves to the next file
       on the list once the file size specified by logd_file_size has been reached. When the last
       file  is  full,	NCA  logging rotates back to the first file in the list. A pointer to the
       current log file is stored in /var/nca/current.

       The logd_file_size key specifies the value of the file size, in bytes,  allowed	for  each
       log file specified in by the logd_path_name key. The default value is 1000000 bytes.

       In  order  to  implement changes to the ncalogd.conf file, you will need to stop and start
       NCA logging or reboot.

       NCA stores logs in a binary format. Use the ncab2clf(1) utility to convert the log from	a
       binary format to the Common Log File format.

       Example 1 A Sample ncalogd.conf File

       The following is a sample ncalogd.conf file that specifies three log files:

	 # NCA Log Daemon Configuration File

	 logd_path_name="/var/nca/log1 /var/nca/log2 /var/nca/log3"

       Note  that there is no NCA logging daemon. Logging is performed as one of the functions of
       the NCA software.

       /etc/nca/ncalogd.conf	Lists configuration parameters for NCAlogging.
