Hello

does anyone have a document that explain how to analyse log file as /var/log/messages or any other log file

You can take a look at log files with tools such as vi, cat, or tail, or you copy the log file to your work station (e.g. with WinSCP) and open it there in your favourite text editor.

thank you
but i do want to know the meaning of each word because i just read the lines and don't understand what's the problem, i need to know the meaning of every key word of the file
Thanks
