In this section we will have a look at the configuration and log files of dCache.

The dCache software is installed in various directories according to the Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. All configuration files can be found in /etc/dcache.

Log files of domains are by default stored in /var/log/dcache/<domainName>.log.

More details about domains and cells can be found in Chapter 5, The Cell Package.

The most central component of a dCache instance is the PoolManager cell. It reads additional configuration information from the file /var/lib/dcache/config/poolmanager.conf at start-up. However, it is not necessary to restart the domain when changing the file. We will see an example of this below.
