Startup parameter: maxlogsize

Startup parameters change the behavior of the Service Manager server. You can always set a startup parameter from the server's operating system command prompt.




This parameter defines the maximum size to which a log file can grow before Service Manager rotates to a new log file. The system creates a new log when the current file reaches the indicated size. This parameter requires the use of the numberoflogfiles parameter.
