Applies to:

Oracle WebLogic Server - Version 10.3 and later
Generic UNIX


The goal is to troubleshoot WebLogic stdout log rotation and truncation problems; these become significant when the stdout file starts growing beyond a manageable size.

Specifically this note covers the usual problems, which are:

1) The stdout file is growing too big and cannot be truncated
2) The stdout file is growing too big and cannot be rotated
3) The stdout file is not growing too big but just isn't being rotated.
