Description:

I am seeing lots of messages in the log file

'SM_WAF_HTTP_PLUGIN' initialized'
'SM_WAF_HTTP_PLUGIN' shutdown

and I want to know what does it mean?

Solution:

These messages are as expected and are logged every time when a webserver child process is created and exited.

When webserver child process is created it will initialize the SiteMinder WebAgent and following will be logged:
'SM_WAF_HTTP_PLUGIN' initialized'

When the child process exits WebAgent will log the following message:
'SM_WAF_HTTP_PLUGIN' shutdown
