File Locations

The following are the locations of important logs and files.

  • /opt/sensor_proxy - The directory that contains the Sensor Proxy files.
  • /usr/local/etc/nginx/ssl - Contains server certificates for encrypting the connection between sensors and Sensor Proxy. If you do not use your own certificates, Sensor Proxy generates self-signed certificates with a 10 year expiration.

    The following are the server certificate files:

    • /usr/local/etc/nginx/ssl/ca.key

    • /usr/local/etc/nginx/ssl/ca.pem

    • /usr/local/etc/nginx/ssl/cert.key

    • /usr/local/etc/nginx/ssl/cert.pem

    Tip: Tenable recommends backing up these files in case you need to recover Sensor Proxy.

  • /opt/sensor_proxy/nginx/logs/access.log - The NGINX access log, which Sensor Proxy causes to grow substantially.

    TipTenable recommends setting up log rotation to prevent running out of disk space.

  • /opt/sensor_proxy/logs - Location of the Sensor Proxy log files.
    • sidecar.log - Logs for the configuration and communication between Sensor Proxy and Tenable Vulnerability Management.
    • sensorproxy.err - Error output from monitoring the Sensor Proxy processes.
    • sensorproxy.out - Non-error output from monitoring the Sensor Proxy processes.
