52.12 Log File Switches

The following switches control how the Internet Agent uses the log file. The log file keeps a record of all Internet Agent activity. See Section 49.6, Using Internet Agent Log Files.

52.12.1 /log

The default location for Internet Agent log files varies by platform:

The log files are named after the month, day, and log number for that date (mmddgwia.nn).You can use the /log switch to redirect the log files to a different location.

Syntax: /log-log_file_directory

NetWare Example: /log-sys:\log\gwia

Linux Example: --log /opt/novell/groupwise/agents/log

Windows Example: /log-c:\log\gwia

52.12.2 /logdays

By default, log files are deleted after 30 days. This switch overrides the default setting. The range is from 1 to 360 days.

Syntax: /logdays-days

Example: /logdays-5

52.12.3 /loglevel

Defines the amount of information to record in log files.

The values are:

  • Diagnostic

  • Verbose

  • Normal (Default)

  • Off

Syntax: /loglevel-level

Example: /loglevel-verbose

52.12.4 /logmax

Controls the maximum amount of disk space for all log files. The amount of disk space each log file consumes is added together to determine the total amount of disk space used. When the limit is reached, the Internet Agent deletes the existing log files, starting with the oldest one. The default is 102400 (100 MB). The maximum allowable setting is 102400000 (1 GB). Specify 0 (zero) for unlimited disk space.

Syntax: /logmax-KB

Example: /logmax-512
