Profiles collects usage statistics and writes them to a log file. These settings are used to configure log file name and location.
Before you begin
To edit configuration files, you must use the IBM
® Application Server wsadmin client. See Starting the wsadmin client
for information about how to start the wsadmin command-line tool.
About this task
Usage statistics are stored in memory and saved to the file system during Profiles shutdown. The statistics are saved to the location configured in the statistics.filePath
files. The statistics logged depend on the Profiles capabilities that are enabled. For example, if you disable the full report-to chain cache, you do not see statistics listed for that capability.

Applying property changes in Profiles
- Start the wsadmin client from the following directory of the system on which you installed the Deployment Manager:
is the WebSphere
Application Server installation directory and <dm_profile_root>
is the Deployment Manager profile directory, typically dmgr01.
You must start the client from this directory or subsequent commands that you enter do not execute correctly.
- Start the Profiles Jython script interpreter.
- Enter the following command to access the Profiles configuration files:
execfile("profilesAdmin.py") If prompted to specify a service to connect to, type 1 to pick the first node in the list. Most commands can run on any node. If the command writes or reads information to or from a file using a local file path, you must pick the node where the file is stored.
- Enter the following command to check out the Profiles configuration files:
- <working_directory> is the temporary working directory to which the configuration XML and XSD files are copied and are stored while you make changes to them. Use forward slashes (/) to separate directories in the file path, even if you are using the Microsoft Windows operating system.
Note: AIX and Linux only: The directory must grant write permissions or the command does not complete successfully.
- <cell_name> is the name of the WebSphere Application Server cell hosting the Profiles application. This argument is required. It is also case-sensitive, so type it with care. If you do not know the cell name, you can determine it by typing the following command in the wsadmin command processor: print AdminControl.getCell()
- AIX or Linux:
- Microsoft Windows:
- To configure statistics for Profiles, use the following command:
- <property> is one of the editable Profiles configuration properties.
- <value> is the new value with which you want to set that property.
The following table displays information regarding the statistics property and the type of data that you can enter for it.
Table 1. Profiles statistics properties
|statistics.filePath||Path of statistics file.|
If this path is relative, it is assumed to be relative to the WebSphere Application Server profile. Absolute paths are also accepted.
This property takes a string value.
|statistics.fileName||Name of statistics file.|
This name is used as the base file name. The actual name of the saved file has the format: <statisticsFileName>_<timestamp>.log
This property takes a string value.
You can view current Profile statistics stored in memory at any time using a browser. Use the following URL to access the statistics page:
- After making changes, you must check the configuration files back in, and you must do so during the same wsadmin session in which you checked them out for the changes to take effect. See Applying property changes in Profiles for information about how to save and apply your changes.
