Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Qn1:

In AM logs directory, there are some amAuthLog logs like this amAuthLog.<PA FQDN>.<port> file.
e.g., amAuthLog.sample.com.443

So is it correct that the contents of those log files shows all the accesses from each Agent?


Qn2:

How to check the number of requests AM is receiving from each PAs, to confirm if a certain PA is sending a lot of requests to AM if the issue reoccurs in the future.

Can they confirm agent name displayed in the "uid=xxxxxxxx"
generated in amAuthentication.access log.

E.g.,
< system A>
uid=www_lib_agent01,
uid=www_lib_agent02,
uid=www_lib_agent03,

<System B>
uid=gakuji_agent01,
uid=gakuji_agent02,
uid=gakuji_agent03,

Is this correct? Is there a better way to confirm the number of the requests from each agents?
