     wbemlogviewer - start WBEM Log Viewer


     The wbemlogviewer utility starts the WBEM Log Viewer graphi-
     cal user interface, which enables administrators to view and
     maintain log records created by WBEM clients and  providers.
     The  WBEM  Log  Viewer displays a Login dialog box. You must
     log in as root or a user with write access to the root\cimv2
     namespace  to  view  and  maintain log files. Namespaces are
     described in wbemadmin(1M).

     Log events can have three severity levels.

       o  Errors

       o  Warnings

       o  Informational

     The WBEM log  file  is  created  in  the  /var/sadm/wbem/log
     directory,  with  the  name wbem_log. The first time the log
     file is backed up, it  is  renamed  wbem_log.1,  and  a  new
     wbem_log  file is created. Each succeeding time the wbem_log
     file is backed up, the file extension number of each  backup
     log  file  is increased by 1, and the oldest backup log file
     is removed if the limit, which in turn is specified  in  the
     log service settings, on the number of logfiles is exceeded.
     Older backup files have higher file extension  numbers  than
     more recent backup files.

     The log file is renamed with a .1 file extension  and  saved
     when one of the following two conditions occur:

       o  The current file reaches the specified file size limit.

       o  A WBEM client application uses the clearLog() method in
          the  Solaris_LogService  class to clear the current log

       o  A WBEM client application uses the clearLog() method in
          the  Solaris_LogService  class to clear the current log

       o  A user chooses Action->Back Up Now in  the  Log  Viewer

     Help is displayed in the left panel of each dialog box. Con-
     text help is not displayed in the main Log Viewer window.

     The WBEM Log Viewer  is  not  the  tool  for  a  distributed
     environment. It is used for local administration.

     The WBEM Log Viewer allows  you  to  perform  the  following
