Log switching

A system administrator can enable log switching to have Service Manager write log information to a new file when the current log file reaches a pre-defined size limit

Log switching is particularly useful for systems that run continuously and do not have downtime for system administrators to back up or delete logs. If you do not enable log switching, Service Manager will add all log messages to the one log file defined in the initialization file.
