Maximum Directory Size

The maximum size, in MBs, of the directory that contains audit output files. For example, assuming that the maximum file size is 10, a value of 100 for this parameter implies that the directory allows a maximum of 10 files. Once the maximum directory size is reached, the audit logging stops.

For example, a value of 100 specifies a maximum of 10 files if the file size is 10 MB. If the size exceeds this, the creation of audit logs stops.

This is configured using the max.DirSize property described in the configuration filejps-config.xml. This property controls the maximum size of a bus-stop directory for Java components as described in the Securing Applications with Oracle Platform Security Services.
