How To Limit CSA Agent Log File Size

We are starting to implement the CSA. One concern is the log file size on the workstation. Is there a way to limit the size of the log on the agent without manual purge or is there an auto purge feature build in the CSA agent?

If there isn't how people usually manage the log file?

Re: How To Limit CSA Agent Log File Size

The 2 main log files on the workstations (securitylog.txt and csalog.txt) are both limited to 1MB. They also will only have 4 versions, so the max you should ever have is 8MB of those files.

If you want to change the number of securitylog.txt files you can edit the number under @program_files:\Cisco Systems\CSAgent\cfg\sysvars.cf

There are options in this config files to change the number of files as well as stop logging locally if you wish.

1MB is good enough. Thanks for you answer.
