As a part of initializing Gateway Service, BAM mounts data and logs folder on the BDDS. This is contrary to deployment on Docker, where BlueCat recommends using Docker volumes as a best practice. However, for Gateway Service on BDDS specifically, mounted volumes work better with the BDDS file system and ensure data persistence when patching or upgrading BDDS.
Note: A known issue exists for Gateway on BDDS for Address Manager v9.4.x and earlier where Gateway data and logs are not retained on the DNS/DHCP Server after upgrade. Refer to KI-025197 for more information.
Gateway Data -
- Stores any changes made to the Gateway configuration of a running container
- Shared directory for any image loaded onto BDDS, meaning if you replace
images, the containers will write the runtime data to
- Do not use for app, plugin, or workflow data; use the Built-in workspace and generate a custom image
Logs - Gateway Service on BDDS has two sets of logs
- Gateway Logs:
/var/log/gateway- Gateway system logs
- BDDS Logs:
/var/log/commandServer.log- Docker status and Gateway status
