Where are the TrueSight Pulse meter logs written?

NOTE On October 11, 2016, BMC released Meter Version 4.4.1 which changed the name of the meter from boundary-meter to truesight-meter. This article reflects the change. If you are using a meter version prior to 4.4.1, then you will need to reference boundary-meter instead of truesight-meter in the operations discussed in this article.

The specifics of where logs are written vary depending on your operating system and configuration.

For Linux and Unix environments, TrueSight Pulse writes to the local syslog using the standard LOG_DAEMON facility. To see TrueSight Pulse specific entries, run one of the following commands depending on your platform:

  • Centos/Red Hat: tail -f /var/log/messages | grep truesight
  • Debian: tail -f /var/log/messages | grep truesight
  • Ubuntu: tail -f /var/log/syslog | grep truesight

When running on Microsoft Windows, the TrueSight Pulse meter writes to an Application event log called TrueSight. For installer specific errors, please check the Windows Event Viewer.
