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?
No, it is not configurable.
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.
NUMPROCS;3; // unlimited
RETRYTIMEOUT;0; // seconds
RETRYMAX;0; // retries
I stand corrected!
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
