Configure Apache Error log connector in LEM

Updated February 28, 2017


This article describes steps to configure and troubleshoot Apache Error log connectors in LEM.



  • Apache2+ on Linux/Unix/Solaris/Windows Server with LEM Agent installed.
  • LEM 6.3.1 with Agent


Configure the log connector

  1. Install LEM agent on the Server running Apache Web server

  2. Get the correct path for the error_log file location. The file name can be different for Debian/Redhat Distros.

  3. Configure the Apache Error Connector on the Agent node and set the patch with the exact file name. For example: 
    /var/log/httpd/error_log on CentOS7.x and /var/log/apache2/error_log on Debian
  4. Start the connector.



Note: The connector works for any Linux or Windows-based Apache Web server installation, as long as the correct path is configured and has permissions to read the error_log file by the user account running the "SWLEM-agent" service.


  1. Connector is configured but not displaying the Apache error logs in LEM web console
  2. Permissions


  1. Make sure the connector is referring to wrong filename / path.

  2. Make sure the connector is not out of date. Apply the latest connector update either manually or Automatically via LEM web console.

  3. Check permissions error_log file and make sure the user running LEM agent service has read access to the file.
