Problem(Abstract)

You are having a Common Event Infrastructure (CEI) problem in WebSPhere Process Server. You would like to know what documentation you must collect (MustGather) so that the WebSphere Process Server Support team can diagnose your problem. If you gather this documentation before contacting support it will expedite the troubleshooting process, and save you time.

Resolving the problem

Collect troubleshooting data for CEI problems in WebSphere Process Server. Gathering this information before calling IBM support helps familiarize you with the troubleshooting process and saves you time.

CEI server:
com.ibm.events.*=all

CEI client application or emitter:
com.ibm.events.*=all


Note: Enabling the trace might slow down your system. This delay can lead to transaction timeouts and errors.

Required diagnostic information

Gather the following information and files:

General diagnostic information
  • Problem description
  • Environment description
  • Server logs: All files from the following directories:
    <profile_root>/<profile_name>/logs/<server_name>
