Where does the p2 mirror application put error logs? [message #489318] Fri, 02 October 2009 12:17

I'm starting to use the p2 mirror application to produce local copies
of selected projects to save download times. Results have been
sporadic, in that much of the time the mirroring has not succeeded.

I have been passing this off as an issue with the Eclipse downloads
site suffering from some mirroring issues itself over the past week
or so.

Attempting to diagnose problems is made more difficult by the
fact that p2 mirror doesn't seem to drop logs, even though it says
it has done so.

Example - using the command

eclipse -nosplash
-application org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.mirrorApplication
-destination /opt/eclipse-mirror/gef
-destinationName "Local Eclipse Mirror"
-verbose -compare

will give the response

Mirroring: osgi.bundle,org.eclipse.gef.examples.logic,3.2.0.v20060626 (Descriptor: canonical: osgi.bundle,org.eclipse.gef.examples.logic,3.2.0.v20060626)
Mirroring: osgi.bundle,org.eclipse.gef.examples.logic,3.2.0.v20060626 (Descriptor: packed: osgi.bundle,org.eclipse.gef.examples.logic,3.2.0.v20060626)
Mirroring completed with warnings and/or errors. Please check log file for more information.
Log file location: /opt/eclipse351/configuration/1254485242658.log

however, the location reported for the log doesn't exist, and a find on
the entire filesystem shows up no files with that name.

Where could the mirror command be putting the log?
