You might need to increase the size of portal.log to assist in troubleshooting UMP/USM


When troubleshooting UMP (USM) performance issues, you may want to increase the size of the portal.log if youre not getting enough debug output/information when accessing the portal.log diagnostics/url.

- UIM v8.5.1

1. Deactivate the wasp probe on the UMP system.

2. To increase the size of the portal.log, edit the file portal-log4j-ext.xml located at:

       <Nimsoft>/probes/service/wasp/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/classes/META-INF/portal-log4j-ext.xml  (look for MaxFileSize).

     For example:

       <param name="MaxFileSize" value="1MB" />

     You could increase it to 3MB.

       <param name="MaxFileSize" value="3MB" />

3. Activate wasp


Click on the hosts/devices/nodes/areas within UMP/USM to recreate any slow performance/timing issue(s), then check the portal log output once again.
