The Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 12c agent's emagent_perl.trc file does not capture a long enough history of output by default (Doc ID 1571905.1)

Last updated on AUGUST 01, 2014

Applies to:

Enterprise Manager Base Platform - Version 12.1.0.1.0 to 12.1.0.3.0 [Release 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The Enterprise Manager 12c Cloud Control agent log file, "emagent_perl.trc" is not long enough to be useful.  It is automatically overwritten after it reaches 5K in size.  Because some metrics which are scheduled to run every day create an output of more than 5K, it is impossible to have a days worth of trace in this file.
