JMS-DATA log files (%USM_HOME%\logs\jms-data) may grow to a few gigabytes and take up disk space on the Catalog server. 


What is JMS?

JMS is the Java Messaging Service which is used internally by Service Catalog to communicate between components (Events-Rules-Actions for example). It is also used for communication to external components like PAM.


To resolve the log file size problem:

1. Stop Service Catalog
2. Delete all the files under %USM_HOME%\logs\jms-data
3. Start CA Service Catalog

Note: Because the files will be re-built, it may take longer for Service Catalog to completely startup.

It would be a good idea to clean out some of the older files in this folder from time to time as there is no harm in this.
