RAC Log File Locations

RAC Log File Locations

If you are using Oracle RAC (doesn’t matter how many nodes you have) You need to know where log files are located.

The Cluster Ready Services Daemon (crsd) Log Files

Log files for the CRSD process (crsd) can be found in the following directories:

                 CRS home/log/hostname/crsd

Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR) Log Files

The Oracle Cluster Registry (OCR) records log information in the following location:

                CRS Home/log/hostname/client

Cluster Synchronization Services (CSS) Log Files

You can find CSS information that the OCSSD generates in log files in the following locations:

                CRS Home/log/hostname/cssd

Event Manager (EVM) Log Files

Event Manager (EVM) information generated by evmd is recorded in log files in the following locations:

                CRS Home/log/hostname/evmd

RACG Log Files

The Oracle RAC high availability trace files are located in the following two locations:

CRS home/log/hostname/racg

$ORACLE_HOME/log/hostname/racg

Core files are in the sub-directories of the log directories. Each RACG executable has a sub-directory assigned exclusively for that executable. The name of the RACG executable sub-directory is the same as the name of the executable.

You can follow below table which define locations of logs files:
