We would like to control the number of AutoSys event_demon logs and as_server logs that get generated over a period of time.


Is there a way to automatically delete older event_demon and as_server logs?


Unix or Windows


This new feature of AutoSys is set in the config file for AutoSys (Unix or Windows) beginning with AutoSys 11.3.6 SP2.





There is a section in the config file:


# Keyword: LOGROLLOVER=<value> 

# Specify when to roll over the Scheduler and Application Server 

# log file. 

# Valid values are: 

# OFF = Do not roll over the log file. 

# MIDNIGHT = Roll over the log file at midnight. 

# SIZE(n) = Roll over the log file when it becomes 

# larger than the value specified in number 

# of megabytes. 

# PURGE(n) = Remove all the application generated log 

# files older than the value specified in 

# number of days. 

# MIDNIGHT,SIZE(n) = Roll over the log file at midnight or when 

# it becomes larger than the value specified 

# in MB. 




Additional Information:

After making the changes, you must restart the AutoSys Scheduler and/or the Application Server for the settings to take effect.
