Introduction:

CLEANLOG.EXE purges entries from the CA XCOM for Windows log (XCOM.LOG). Items older the specified age are deleted. This assures that the file will not grow too large.

 

 

Background:
CLEANLOG.EXE can be run from the command line or from a command file.
CA-XCOM for Windows NT should be idle when this program is run.
CA-XCOM does not save entries that are purged.
You may want to back up the log before running CLEANLOG.
Instructions:
