MonitoringSome montoring pages are available from the web. The ganglia setup on lcfg tracks the cluster performance. The Grid functional test site monitors world-wide LCG sites. Well behaved sites show up green .
Log File ManagementLog files are normally rotated by the logrotate rpm via cron early Sunday morning (4h00) according to a default schedule configured in /etc/logrotate.conf
Currently logs rotated by logwatch are kept for 12 weeks. Log files are permanently archived - see the section on Back-ups.
