Special parameters: msglog




This parameter defines the maximum number of messages the Service Manager server displays in the log file. These include only messages designated for the current operator. That is, the messages that are addressed to operator() or any field whose value equals operator().

Note If this parameter is not explicitly specified (either in sm.ini or in the server's operating system command prompt), only the messages that are not sent to the clients are logged (for example, the messages generated by the background processes), and the default value (50000) is used. If you want the system to log the messages that are sent to the clients, you must explicitly specify this parameter.
