ctsysm Configuration File

The configuration file, ctsysm.cfg, contains server messages classified by the server subsystems that generate the log entries, the recommended actions, and details for each message. The configuration file is simply a text file, an abbreviated copy of which is shown later in this document. The configuration file can be used as-is, although some of the default recommended actions are general and administrators may want to customize these.

The subsystem list consists of entries in this format:

<subsystem_keyword> <subsystem_description>

The action list consists of entries in this format:

<action_keyword> <action_description>

The messages are in the following format:

<code> <subsystem> <action> <num_lines> <text>

where <code> is a 5-character code beginning with a message type and followed by a 4-digit message number (for example, E0001). Possible message codes include:

  • F: Fatal error
  • E: Error
  • W: Warning
  • I: Information
  • U: Unclassified

Because the configuration file is a text file separate from the server executable, it can easily be updated as new or application-specific information about specific messages becomes available, without having to update the server executable.
