Issue:
We are upgrading our Wily system from Redhat5 to RedHat7 going from Wily version 9.6 to 10.3. We noticed a lot of messages related to Wily in the /var/log/messages file which in turn triggers spectrum alerts on the new system. These messages are logged mainly during system restarts and security scans. Is that expected? 
Environment:
All APM releases.
Cause:
Scripting error as listed below. This is not expected behavior unless configured.
Resolution:
Non-working version
su - wily -c "/usr/bin/nohup $ISC_HOME/Introscope_Enterprise_Manager&" 2>&1 >/dev/null 

su - wily -c "/usr/bin/nohup $ISC_HOME/Introscope_WebView&" 2>&1 >/dev/null 

Corrected version
su - wily -c "/usr/bin/nohup $ISC_HOME/Introscope_Enterprise_Manager&" /dev/null 2>&1

su - wily -c "/usr/bin/nohup $ISC_HOME/Introscope_WebView&" /dev/null 2>&1
 
Additional Information:
Customer was seeing Introscope console messages in /var/log/messages. This log is deprecated for some operating systems.
