Debug mode is useful for troubleshooting purposes.  In Secure Enterprise Search (SES) there are two primary log files that can assist in troubleshooting issues. 

The Oracle Secure Enterprise Search Administration tool writes to the following log:

Version 10.1.x


Version 11.1.x




The crawler log file can usually be found in the SES install directory,
under ./middleware/logs/crawler/crawler  directory,  for ex: search.crawler.i1ds2.xxxxxxxx.log
If launching of crawler process if failing look in this directory also for log files of the form job#.log. eg 214.log

Version 10.1.x , 11.1.x and 11.2.x
