AD and TXK C Delta 4 patches has introduced a new Online Patching Log Analyzer Utility adopscanlog

This utility makes the work easiar and analyzes adop log directories for errors and warnings, and displays messages to help the user quickly identify any problems that may have occurred during an adop run. It thereby offers an alternative to reviewing log files manually.

$ adopscanlog

The utility can also be run with various options, as shown in the following list.

To scan log directories relating to the latest run of adop in the latest session:
$ adopscanlog -latest=yes
To scan log directories relating to the latest run of the specified phase, in the latest session:
$ adopscanlog -latest=yes -phase=<phase_name>
To scan all log directories of a given session (represented by a session_id) for errors:
$ adopscanlog -session_id=<number>
To scan a specific log directory for errors:
$ adopscanlog –scan_dir=<full path of directory to scan>
To see a complete list of supported parameters:
$ adopscanlog -help
