Number of saved VNM.OUT files?

Jump to Best Answer
  • 1.  Number of saved VNM.OUT files?

    Posted 10-05-2018 08:32 AM

    Hi all,

     

    just a dumb qestion. Between Spectrum 10.2.0 & 10.2.3 some ideas regarding VNM.OUT rotation were implemented:

    Spectroserver - split debug data from VNM.OUT or add VNM.OUT log rotation 

    Extension for VNM.out rotation 

    Save .bak log files with time stamp extensions 

    We have bunch of old files on the server and they are deleted after some amount of time. Good!

     

    Now the question: is the number of files VNM.OUT / ARCHMGR.OUT to be kept configurable?

    Hi Hilmar,

      No, it is not configurable.  

    Cheers

    Hilmar,

     

    It can be configured in the idb file for the process with the LOGBACKUPMAX parameter. For example, in SS.idb file located in the $SPECROOT/lib/SDPM/partslist, 

     

    $ cat SS.idb

    # Processd Install Ticket for SpectroSERVER Daemon.

    PARTNAME;SS;

    APPNAME;SpectroSERVER Daemon;

    WORKPATH;$SPECROOT/SS;

    LOGNAMEPATH;$WORKPATH/VNM.OUT;

    LOGBACKUPMAX;10;

    ADMINPRIVS;y;

    #AUTORESTART;N;

    #AUTOBOOTSTART;N;

    STATEBASED;y;

    NUMPROCS;3; // unlimited

    RETRYTIMEOUT;0; // seconds

    #TICKETUSER;$USER;

    RETRYMAX;0;     // retries

    STARTPRIORITY;20;

    SERVERPROCESS;Y;

    #ENV;<var>=<value>;

    ARGV;$SPECROOT/SS/SpectroSERVER<CSEXE>; //

    Hi Joseph,

     

    many thanks for the answer! I guess the same option is valid for other idb files too, writing log files, e.g. ARCHMGR. Correct? Thanks!

    SS and ARCHMGR are both set to LOGBACKUPMAX;10; out of the box
