Introduction:

 A customer was seeing large growth in the EPA.log when running an EPAgent.  Customer wants to know how to shut off additional logging.

Question:

 How do you turn off logging to the EPA.log file?

Environment:
All versions of EPAgent on UNIX.
Answer:

In the EPACtrl.sh file that is used to start the EPAgent, you can replace the value of this parameter. 

From:

LOGFILE="${WILYHOME}/epa.log"

To:

LOGFILE=/dev/null

 

This should not be considered as a fix to the problem, but can be used only as a temporary workaround until more research can be done to determine why the logs are growing.
