view log files and verify logging

Unanswered Question
Mar 21st, 2008


I seem to remember there was a page that I could look at the various log file sizes but I don't remember where that was.

Also, one of the logs was a tomcat log.

Are these usually logs that are only started when you are troubleshooting?

If so, where can I verify that there are not various logs running if I don't need them?



I found the page and almost all of the log files are greater the the recommended file size.

the syslog log is 119549634 bytes.

there are 31 logs total, should I be managing these log files and there size?

I have this problem too.

Yes, you should be managing these logs (though the recommendations are a bit low). You can use the NMSROOT/bin/ tool to truncate and archive log files. This tool is documented in the Common Services online help.
