The following demo is an abstract from the IBM Cognos TM1: Administer the Technical Environment (V9.5)
two day training course, available in a classroom or online environment.
This demo shows how to use the audit log, with the GreatOutdoors
TM1 server, but you can use any TM1 server that you have available.
- Open Windows Explorer, and then navigate to C:\Edcognos\P6505\GreatOutdoors
- Open the tm1s.cfg file in Notepad.
You want to enable the audit log and specify how frequently this log is to be updated.
- Set the value of the AuditLogOn parameter to T.
- Set the value of the AuditLogUpdateInterval parameter to 60.
The AuditLogUpdateInterval indicates the amount of time, in minutes, that TM1waits before moving the events.
The events are moved from the temporary audit file into the final audit log.
The result appears as shown below (some of the parameter values, such as the value for AdminHost, may be different):
- Save the file and close Notepad.
- On the Desktop, double-click the greatoutdoors icon to restart the greatoutdoors TM1 server.
- From the Start menu, point to All Programs\IBM Cognos\TM1, and then click Architect.
- Expand TM1, and then double-click greatoutdoors.
You are prompted to log on to the GreatOutdoors TM1 server.
- In the UserName box, type admin, leave the Password box blank, and then click OK.
- Ensure that greatoutdoors is selected, and then from the Server menu, click Process Audit Log Events.
You are prompted to update the audit log with the latest events.
- Click Yes, and then from the Server menu, click View Audit Log.
The Audit Log window opens.
- Click Run Query.
The Results section of the Audit Log window shows a list of audit events. The result appears as shown below (your specific results will be slightly different):
You can further refine your results by choosing a different time period, as well as by specifying the event owner and type.
- Close the Audit Log window.
You enabled audit logging for the GreatOutdoors TM1 server, processed the audit log, and reviewed the details of the audit log.
