Including Log Messages in Other Logging Systems
Besides logging messages in the Broker Server log, Broker Monitor and Broker Server can optionally send their messages to the host machine's native logging facility (syslog on UNIX or the Event Log Service on Windows).
You can also configure Broker Server and Broker Monitor to send their messages as SNMP traps to other computers via the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). To view these messages, you must have an SNMP management system configured with an SNMP viewer, such as Hewlett-Packard's OpenView.
To configure your SNMP viewer, you will need the Broker Server's management information base (MIB) file. This file (activesw.mib) is located in the webMethods Broker_directory /lib directory. To learn how to set up and configure your SNMP viewer, see the documentation for your system's management software.
