Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Content - Version 11.1.1.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Using WebCenter Content 11.1.1.6 on Linux, connecting to an Oracle DB 11.2.0.2.

In production environment the number of log files *_ocs_index.log is continuously growing in the database's $ORACLE_HOME/ctx/log directory.

How to change the location of these log files, or avoid the log files from being generated ?

Here is a sample content from one log file (1392444210297_ocs_index.log) :
