Severity: 3-Major


When APMd log file is tempered with, e.g added blank line in the middle, mcpd will treat it as end of file rather than an error. So system remains silent while user doesn't see any errors.


Reporting show incomplete logs


When APMd log file is modified by user


Restore apmd logfile.

Fix Information

Improved backend code to check for end of file rather than extra line break in log file and report error when log file had been hand-modified incorrectly
