System Housekeeping

Hi All ,

Due to space issues, I am trying to write a small script to perform housekeeping of old files in which I am deleting trace files and logs older than a specifed date. However there are some files that have logs appended to them rather than new log created everytime.

$HOME/businessobjects/Data_Quality_Mgmt_for_SAP_Solutions/logs/flrfcsrv_batch_log.txt

$HOME/businessobjects/Data_Quality_Mgmt_for_SAP_Solutions/logs/flrfcsrv_log.txt

$HOME/businessobjects/bobje/logging/tomcatshutdown.log

$HOME/businessobjects/bobje/logging/tomcatstartup.log

$HOME/businessobjects/dataservices/adapters/log/JMS_Adapter_error.txt

$HOME/businessobjects/dataservices/adapters/log/JMS_Adapter_trace.txt

I was wondering if i can safely delete this files and expect new ones to be created again or should i leave them AS IS.

Update - Just deleted flrfcsrv_batch_log.txt and flrfcsrv_log.txt and new ones didn't get created after I ran some jobs Maybe they might get created if something fails.

Guys - Please advise!

Hi,

I can confirm for the first two files:

$HOME/businessobjects/Data_Quality_Mgmt_for_SAP_Solutions/logs/flrfcsrv_batch_log.txt

$HOME/businessobjects/Data_Quality_Mgmt_for_SAP_Solutions/logs/flrfcsrv_log.txt

that they would be recreated.

I will let someone else familiar with the other logs reply for them.

Thanks,

Paula

Thanks Paula , I did delete these files and they were not created back . I tried some DQM calls from SAP and they were working but the logs didn't get created.

I think they would be created only when some errors/warning would occur.

Sorry, I should have pointed out that a restart of the DQM for SAP RFC server is what would recreate them.

Thanks,
