       VolserLog - Traces Volume Server	operations

       The VolserLog file records a trace of Volume Server (volserver process)
       operations on the local machine and describes any error conditions it

       If the VolserLog	file does not already exist in the /var/openafs/logs
       directory when the Volume Server	starts,	the server process creates it
       and writes initial start-up messages to it. If there is an existing
       file, the Volume	Server renames it to VolserLog.old, overwriting	the
       existing	VolserLog.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 file
       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 VolserLog	file
       grant the required "r" (read) permission	to all users.

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