    The level of debug log for seosd (seos_debug) can be configured by seosd.debug_level seos.ini token.

    The default value is critical that only records critical level log.

    Changing the token to low records all levels of debug log.

     

    Here is how to change the token and obtain low level debug log without restarting PIM:

     

    1. change the token to low via selang

    # selang

    AC> env config

    AC(config)> er config seos.ini section(seosd) token(debug_level) value(low)

     

    2. reload seos.ini to start low level debug log

    # secons -rl

     

    3. reproduce the problem that the debug log is needed

     

    4. change back the token to critical via selang

    # selang

    AC> env config

    AC(config)> er config seos.ini section(seosd) token(debug_level) value(critical)

     

    5. reload seos.ini to stop low level debug log

    # secons -rl
