HCP access log collector

Quick links: HCP access log collector

Hitachi Content Platform (HCP) logs access to its REST-based interfaces on a regular basis and keeps these logs for 30 days. While access to these logs was possible by downloading the internal logs using the System Management Console (SMC) since HCP version 7.0, it was a quite cumbersome manual task to extract the logs from the provided zip-file.

HCP version 7.2 invented a Management API (MAPI) endpoint that allows to selectively access parts (or all) of the internal logs.

The HCP access log collection utility tool concentrates on downloading the access logs only, enabling users to collect (and archive) these logs on a regular basis.

Features

  • Collects access logs for the REST-based interfaces from HCP systems
  • Supports collection from multiple HCP systems in a single run
  • Stores them in a defined folder structure in a local folder and/or in an HCP Namespace for later processing

Dependencies

You need to have at least Python 3.4.3 installed to run hcplogs.

It depends on these packages:

  • hcpsdk - Used for access to HCP.
