How To Control The Log Files Of A Custom Portal Server And Avoid the File Size From Growing Too Big (Doc ID 1943984.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 19, 2016

Applies to:

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

Goal

By default, a custom managed server generates 3 log files (a server log, a diagnostic log, and a standard out log).  
Weblogic Server has the ability to rotate the server log and the diagnostic log.  But there is no rotation option for the standard out log because it is managed by the JVM itself.  This note provides instruction on how you may manage these 3 log files.
