       BosLog -	Traces BOS Server operations

       The BosLog file records a trace of Basic	OverSeer (BOS) Server
       (bosserver process) operations on the local machine and describes any
       error conditions	it encounters.

       If the BosLog file does not already exist in the	/var/openafs/logs
       directory when the BOS Server starts, the server	process	creates	it and
       writes initial start-up messages	to it. If there	is an existing file,
       the BOS server renames it to BosLog.old,	overwriting the	existing
       BosLog.old file if it exists.

       The file	is in ASCII format. Administrators listed in the
       /usr/local/etc/openafs/server/UserList file can use the bos getlog
       command to display its contents.	Alternatively, log onto	the server
       machine and use a text editor or	a file display command such as the
       UNIX cat	command. By default, the mode bits on the BosLog file grant
       the required "r"	(read) permission to all users.

       The BOS Server records operations only as it completes them, and	cannot
       recover from failures by	reviewing the file. The	log contents are
       useful for administrative evaluation of process failures	and other
