How to Calculate Disk Space Usage by the OID 11g-12c oidldapd Logs (to Help Determine Log Configuration / Rotation Schedule) (Doc ID 2024428.1)

Last updated on MAY 28, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Internet Directory - Version 11.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The number and individual size of the oidldadp logs is determined by these two instance-specific attributes:

Maximum Log File Size (MB)

Maximum Number of Log Files to Keep in Rotation

Where the first line shows the user-friendly name of the attribute that you see in the Fusion Middleware Enterprise Manager interface and the second line is the actual name of the attribute in the OID DIT. You will need to use the second one if you want to change it through LDAP commands.

For how to change the values of these attributes please refer to the Managing Logging chapter of the OID 11g or 12c Admin Guides:

Once the limits set by these two parameters are reached, OID will start rotating the logs.


NOTE: Apart from the oidldapd logs, you will also have oidmon, oiddispd, oidctl, oidrepld (if you are using replication) and perhaps OS-managed files, such as core files or dmp files. So the total size of the OID logs folder will thus be larger than just the sum of the oidldapd logs.
