Advanced Log System Configuration

Configuring file output

You control the log file output of the Adapter using the file option in the log section of the Adapter:


Default Value: info, ail, 10MB, 20, zip
Valid Values: <level>, <file_name_root>, <file_max_size>, <file_number> [, zip] [, timestamped]

  • "<level>: false, debug, info, warn, error, fatal
  • <file_name_root>: correct path to a file name
  • < file_max_size>: maximum file size in MB
  • < file_ number>: number of files for the rolling logs
  • [, zip]: to get compressed log files (optional)
  • [, timestamped]: to add a timestamp when a new file is created. An existing file will be replaced when it reaches file_max_size (optional)

Changes Take Effect: Immediately.

Specifies how to write entries into log files.

How to limit size of the logs?

You can define the size of the log file (file_max_size) and the number of log files (file_number) that will be stored. For example, if you would like your logs to use a maximum of 1 GB of disk space set the file value as follows:

'file' = 'info, ici, 50MB, 20'

This will instruct the Adapter to create up to 20 log files, with a maximum size of 50 MB (20 * 50 = 1000 MB).

Can I store compressed logs on my computer?

Yes, by adding zip to the file option you instruct Adapter to compress the log file and store it to the computer. For example:

'file' = 'info, ici, 50MB, 20, zip'

Can I add a timestamp to every log file with the creation time?

Yes. By default, the Adapter includes a start timestamp in the file name application, as well the the file number 1,2,..,N. For example:


If you would like every file name to contain a timestamp when it is created, add the timestamped flag to the file option.

For example:

'file'='info, ici, 10MB, 20, timestamped'

When set accordingly, option file names appear as follows:


Notice that each timestamp is different and that no file number is added at the end of file name.
