View IAS pull adapter logs

The IAS pull adapter logs are captured in the IAS log files. You can filter the IAS log file using the log tag PullAdapter to obtain the pull adapter logs.

A sample log looks like this:

{1554751488.545} { } [PullAdapter-DashDlsdMain] Segment with URL:
http://elemental-fra.origin.live.eu.aiv-cdn.net/geohdde-1/out/u/55_video_2_3_19214533.mp4?m=1516321807 
pulled and forwarded to IAS successfully. Time taken: 311ms

Log files can be resource intensive. If you need to rotate the logs, enable this option and set the rotationcount and rotationsize in your /var/opt/akamai-ias/setup.xml file.

LogDir="/var/log/akamai-ias" PmMaxSessions="4" PmTimeOut="3m"
    TempID="Da_Matpef_Pokres_09645958" Variant="IAS">
  <log ratelimit="2000" type="NORMAL">
    <console enabled="false"/>
    <file enabled="true" nodate="false" rotationcount="20" rotationsize="100000000"/>
    <server enabled="false"/>
  </log>

rotationcount is the number of files to keep and `rotationsize' is the size of each file measured in bytes.

After making the changes in /var/opt/akamai-ias/setup.xml, restart the akamai-ias service.
