Logging

The Persistent Agent has a logging feature for packet activity on the host. The log file automatically rotates every 24 hours based on the installation time of the Persistent Agent. The log file is stored in the following locations:

Windows

For Windows Operating systems look in the Common Application Data directory at %ProgramData%\Bradford Networks\bndaemon_log.txt

macOS

For macOS log messages are sent to the system log via the "debug" syslog priority.

  • On 10.5 and 10.6 messages show up in system.log
  • On 10.4 these messages show up in console.log

Linux

  • On Linux (Debian Based), these messages show up in /var/log/syslog
  • On Linux (Red Hat Based), these messages show up in /var/log/messages
Note

Time stamps included in the log file are displayed in UTC time. Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is a high precision atomic time standard that corresponds roughly to Greenwich Mean Time.
