[...] R12 various Log file locations… [...]

Hello Srikrishna

Thanks for the Info. Appreciate your effort in doing KT. :)

Small clarification about the alert log location in R12. I guess it depends on the database version in place.

If the database is 11g, the alert log is in $ORACLE_HOME/../../diag/rdbms///trace/ location.( or atleast something like that as the diagnostic top location is decided during the db install with ORACLE_BASE - if you chose advanced installation.)

Please correct me if wrong.

Best Regards

Sorry, I think the location was truncated in my update.

It was supposed to be $ORACLE_HOME/../../diag/rdbms/sid/SID/trace/

Yes, You are right Harsha. The default installation of R12 comes with 10g and if R12 is using 11g database, it stores the trace files in DIAGNOSTIC_DEST value. This is the new parameter introduced in 11g database. This home stores all the logs and traces of all the oracle components like ASM, CRS, listener, DB at a single location unlike oracle 10g.
This is same as ADR home. The Automatic Diagnostic Repository (ADR) stores diagnostic data such as alter log, trace files, user and background dump files, and also new types of troubleshooting files such as Health Monitor reports, Incident packages, SQL test cases and Data repair records.
BTW, how are you Harsha?

Hi Srikrishna.

Thanks for confirming.

Yeah. I am doing good. I thought you wouldn't remember me. How are you doing in ESD?

I have to admit your blog is very informative and helpful. Keep up the good work.

Thanks so much Harsha for your feedback and i also need your inputs to fine tune the articles.
Now i am not working with Oracle,but still in touch with all our oracle friends.Keep in touch.

Is there a way to change the log and output file destination of oracle applications/module.
By default, all are dumped to $APPLCSF/APPLLOG and $APPLCSF/APPLOUT.
I need to make it $APPLCSF/AR for Receivables reports log and output, $APPLCSF/AP for Payables.


June 23, 2011 at 7:17 AM

found it, remove the $APPLCSF in the context. But the destination will take the default TOP directory of the module.
