Goal

You want to check if there are large log files on your file system. Large log files, especially if they exceed 2 GB in size, can cause various problems in Application Server. Components may not start, or may not operate successfully anymore.

Error messages like "child pid %s exit signal File size limit exceeded (25)" may be shown.
